The peak of Summer brings two of our favorite veggies of which we make whole meals of at our house - fresh Sweet Corn and Cherokee Purple Tomatoes! On visits to the local farm market our enthusiasm often out strips our actual capacity to consume the massive amounts of produce we purchase and we wind up with an over abundance gracing our table. If you are like us, this recipe is the perfect solution for that leftover corn. If you like to freeze corn for the winter months this works wonderfully as well, just try mixing together a bag of our Whole Grain Beer Bread Mix into this yummy Corn Fritter Recipe.
The base of this recipe is our Whole Wheat Beer Bread Mix which is made with locally milled organic flour from Carolina Ground in Asheville NC. As with all of our products we love working with other local growers and small batch producers. Carolina Ground's mission is to shorten the gap between the farmer and the baker and bring milling closer to home by sourcing grain from organic farms primarily in NC and surrounding states. The quality of their flours is unsurpassed and we always enjoy the results of using their freshly milled flour in our baking.
This recipe is easy to mix up and pan fry in a cast iron skillet. We whip our Spiced Apple & Beer Jam into softened butter which makes the perfect melting topping for a freshly broken open fritter. Crisp & crunchy outside, soft and fluffy inside with bits of corn and hot peppers--the perfect BBQ or football season snack for halftime!
To try this tasty combination yourself, you can find our Whole Wheat Beer Bread Mix, Spiced Apple & Beer Jam and Honey Pickled Jalapenos in our Corn Fritter Recipe Gift Box through our online store. Each box contains a copy of the full recipe shown below with featured ingredients from Copper Pot & Wooden Spoon.
Want to give this recipe a go right now but don't have the Beer Bread Mix? Results may vary as the variety of the flour we use in our mix is a little different mill than most whole wheat flours, but you may substitute for the Beer Bread Mix:
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Salt
