  • 6 ears sweet corn (I like to use yellow or bi-color corn)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 jalapeno, diced (seeded and ribs removed, as desired)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine ground sea salt, or to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Remove the husks and silks from the corn and use a sharp knife to slice the kernels off the cob.
  2. Melt the butter with the oil in a large skillet (cast iron works well) over medium heat. Add the corn and diced jalapeno and cook, stirring occasionally, until corn is just starting to get tender, about 10 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle the sugar over the top and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue to cook, stirring, for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until corn is tender to your liking and some of the kernels are beginning to brown slightly and caramelize. Serve immediately.
