  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 4 cups corn preferably fresh from the cob
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • If using fresh corn, use a sharp knife to cut the kernels off the cob. If using frozen, no need to thaw, just add a few more minutes to the cooking time. If using canned, drain the corn.
  • Dice the green bell peppers, a small dice just slightly bigger than the corn.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat.
  • When the butter stops foaming, add the bell pepper. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the corn, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook stirring occasionally for 5-10 minutes.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning.



  • Onions
  • Hot Peppers
  • Honey (even hot honey)
