This is a good basic recipe. The use of frozen corn is advisable for both convinced and the fact that fresh corn just seems to never break down and soften up anymore these days! There is a traditional soul food dish much like this but it's called "fried corn". It used fresh corn off the cob with the "milk" from the cob added and regarded as liquid gold. These days corn is just too hard and will not soften week enough no matter how long it is cooked. That dish also used TONS of butter and whole milk. Another difference that adds to the flavor profile is the addition of chopped onion, red and green peppers sauteed to softness before adding the corn and other ingredients. If those cook away as the corn cooks, that perfectly fine. The flavor is what you want. But if you like the festive look of it, saute less before adding the corn. In that form I've even heard of the dish being called "Christmas corn"! Adding a bit more sugar helped as well.
It's awesome with baked ham, pork chops or baked or fried chicken.
