EASY SWEET CORN DELIGHTS - 7 VARIETIES

NOTES ON COOKING CORN: I have used fresh American corn kernels. If using American corn, Microwave high for 3 minutes. Add salt to taste, mix well and again Microwave high for 1 minute. Frozen corn can be substituted instead of american corn. If using frozen corn, put it in a bowl of water for 5 minutes, drain the water and then microwave the corns. If using the regular indian variety of corn, boil it in water till tender. All the recipes will taste better when served HOT.

1. BUTTERY CORN:

American sweet corn - 2 cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp.
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp.
