To one dozen ears of corn add three eggs, half a teacupful of powdered
crackers, one tablespoonful of sifted flower. Cut off the corn very lightly
from the cob -- say half of the grain -- and then scrape the other half
clean with a knife. Add the crackers to corn and beat together light. Beat
the eggs light and add with the flour and a quarter of a teacupful of sweet
milk. Season to taste and beat the whole light. Have your lard or butter hot
when you go to fry, and drip the batter into the hot fat from off the end of
a spoon, letting it fry quick and brown. Have young and tender corn. The fat
ought to be hot enough to brown the fritters in two minutes.
