Sauteed Fresh Corn- Barefoot Contessa. Ina said: "I wait all year for the sweet corn to come to the farmstands. The corn is so flavorful on its own that all I do is cut the kernels off the cobs with a sharp knife, and sauté them with butter, salt, and pepper until they just start to turn golden brown. Ten minutes later - I’m in heaven! No one can believe how simple and delicious this recipe is and the best part - no dental floss!"
