Marina’s Golden Corn Fritters

Just one bite of these fritters takes me back to when my kids were young. Nowadays for our get-togethers, I sometimes triple the recipe. Serve fritters with maple syrup or agave nectar. —Marina Castle, Canyon Country, California

    So good. I serve them with a side of honey butter.

    In a local Mexican market, I bought freshly-picked corn and had the kernels cut off the cobs. I used some for this corn fritter recipe, but substituted a small minced jalape?o chile for the parsley. We served it with a roasted tomato and jalape?o salsa and everyone loved them. They're calling my fritters 'tortitas de elote.'

    I had never made fritters before but understand they are a well known Southern snack. I made these fritters and served with soup. My family thought they were really good and I will make them again.

    These corn fritter are delicious as a side dish. Try adding finely chopped jalapenos.
