Instructions
To prepare the corn:
  1. Bring 8 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of salt to a boil. Carefully drop the ears of corn into the boiling water. Cook the corn in the uncovered pan for 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully remove the corn from the boiling water with kitchen tongs and let cool to the touch.
  2. On a plate or cutting board, cut the corn kernels off of the corn cobs. Using the back of your knife, then scrape the rest of the “milk” of the corn kernels from the corn cob, in with the rest of the cut kernels. Set aside.
To fry the corn:
  1. In a large skillet, add the chopped vegan sausages or cut up vegan bacon, along with the the oil. Sauté until the vegan meat begins to brown.
  2. (At this stage, remove the vegan meat, or let it cook in the corn a few minutes, then remove it, if you wish. If you have chopped the meat small, you can also leave it in and serve the dish with the vegan meat included.)
  3. Add 2-1/2 tablespoons of vegan butter to the skillet and add the corn, stirring. Add the garlic and thyme (or any herbs, spices, or zest you are using). Add salt and black pepper, to taste.
  4. Cook on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes until the corn is tender and brighter yellow. Serve hot as a delicious southern side dish.
