If you have never eaten pickled corn you really need to make some and try it. When I was growing up in Ohio you could find pickled corn in most everyone’s pantry. Lots of people pickled corn back then at least they did in that area. For years I have been wanting some pickled corn, I had no clue how to make it because I was just a kid when we moved away from there and I never saw pickled corn again. But I would get random craving for some. I searched for it in just about every store I ever went into and at farmers market but never had any luck finding it. I could find corn relish and even corn that was pickled nut still on the cob which wasn’t the same.
Well it might be the same but the way I love to eat pickled corn is to save the bacon dripping when I fry bacon and then get that grease good and hot as fry the corn in it till is gets a little brown all over. There is nothing in the world that tastes quite like pickled corn fried in bacon grease, it is so delicious. So last year I got a craving again and decided to try searching online since there are so many stores that sell food items online I thought maybe someone from down there has started a pickled corn selling business (well I was hoping) . I never did find any of the kind I was looking for, I did find the pickled corn on cob and those little baby corn you see in Chinese restaurants that were pickled but then finally!!
I found a site where a lady that grew up in Kentucky right across the river from where I grew up) had both eaten and made pickled corn all her life and she bless her pickled corn making heart shares the recipe and instructions so I can make it my self. She shares the recipe on Dave’s Garden and if you like pickled vegetables you should give pickled corn a try, just make sure you take it off the cob so you can fry it in bacon grease. It is so good.
