Family Recipe Friday: Purefoy Hotel Creamed Corn

Someone asked me several months ago to post the recipe for The Purefoy Hotel's  (Talladega, Alabama) recipe for creamed corn.  Sorry so tardy.  Here it is.

Purefoy Creamed Corn

12 large ears corn
1/2 cup bacon drippings
2 Tbs. butter
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt

Cut corn very lightly, then scrape with a dull knife.  Put in a porcelain lined vessel with four cups of boiling water and 1/2 cup bacon drippings.  Cook until half done, add butter, sugar and salt.  Cook from 30 - 40 minutes over slow heat, stirring constantly to keep from burning.
