Corn has finally come into season in the Capital District and this recipe utilizes corn from Sheldon Farms in Washington County who will have its own little corn festival in support of the Saratoga region chapter of Slow Food USA on Saturday August 9th, 2008 where these fritters will be featured and cooked by myself along with a number of other fantastic corn dishes.
