Winter Maque-Chou a la Chacherre
Tony the famous Cajun says to buy 12 ears of corn on the cob, fresh, and cut the kernels off. Hard to do in the winter, so I buy a large bag of corn kernels at Wal-Mart, warm it a bit in the microwave, and set aside. Melt a stick of improved margarine and add one chopped onion, one chopped bell pepper, and one chopped garlic clove and cook about five minutes until the onion is translucent. Add a T. or more of Cajun seasoning mix and the corn. Stir on medium heat for 20-30 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Stir in a cup of milk a bit at a time, stirring frequently to see if mix gets dry, and add a bit more if needed until a cup is gone. Total cooking time about 90 minutes, but you must keep stirring to make it work. Best corn dish I know. Top drawer.
