Generally speaking, canned corn is a drag. But good fresh corn is available for such a short time each year. What's a corn lover to do? Here's one good answer.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Beat the yolks slightly and add the corn, salt and butter or margarine. Mix the cracker crumbs and baking powder and combine with the corn mixture. Fold in the egg whites.
Fry by spoonfuls in hot oil until golden brown on each side. Add more oil to the pan as needed.
