A new recipe from Family Favorite Cookbook
Skillet Cooked Fresh Corn
By Cleo Holt
12 fresh corncobs from the garden
1 pint of heavy cream
1 stick of real unsalted butter
Salt & pepper
Shuck the corn and clean the silk from the cob. Then stand the cob in a deep dish holding the top of the cob and, using a sharp knife, a sharp knives is safer than a dull knife, carefully cut the kernels off.
Add the stick of butter and corn into a very large skillet, salt and pepper to your own taste, remember it is a fresh a vegetable and it will need salt. Pour in some of the cream until you get a creamy texture. Let simmer for about an hour, until tender, stirring often, add more cream if necessary. Do taste the corn to be sure you’ve added enough salt.
Recipe will serve a large family, enjoy.
I made homemade peach ice cream yesterday, (made with real heavy cream, eggs, stevia, and fresh peaches). Now I need to make my peach cobbler and add the ice cream on top of the warm cobbler.
I remember on hot summer evenings in Nashville, AR the neighbors Mrs. Stone, Claude and Marion would bring out the old fashion ice cream maker and we'd all sit around and take turns turning the handle. Of course the fresh peaches had been picked off the peach trees growing in our yard.
You see it was an old wooden ice cream maker that most young people have never seen, the crank type that used rock salt, no not electric. Oh, it was so wonderful when the fresh churned ice cream would be dipped out of the wooden bucket and a small amount of salt would fall into it giving the sweet and salty taste. Of course I always begged to lick the ice cream off the paddle and would sit staring up at the stars and eat all the ice cream I wanted.

Had a fun and exhausting day yesterday in Savannah meeting the Deen family. I was able to tell Paula Deen about my books, 'A Faded Cottage' & 'Whispering Fog', Diann Shaddox Foundation and Essential Tremor.
My tremors were on overload, even my legs were shaking because of the heat and I hadn't had anything to eat.
Paula just held onto my quavering hands. Of course she was like so many others and didn't know what ET was.
Over 10 million Americans, children and adults live each day with uncontrollable shakes from essential tremor, the largest movement disorder in the world. Awareness and education will stop the bullying, people losing their jobs, college students having their dreams disappear and end depression for people worldwide who are living with hand, voice, head, and body tremors. Every dollar will educate & change how the world sees ET! Essential Tremor is devastating, debilitating, demoralizing for millions including children around the world. What is Essential Tremor? ET is the largest movement disorder in the world and is a progressive neurological condition that causes a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs, or trunk. The Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor will make a difference in millions of people’s lives and directly change the future for everyone who will inherit or develop ET, but they need your help. Make a difference.
