1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 tablespoon bacon fat
1/2 cup fresh sweet corn kernels

Mix cornmeal, salt, baking soda, in a bowl. Once mixed add an egg and buttermilk. Place bacon fat in a hot pan. Place about an ounce to two ounces into the pan and let it spread evenly. Flip once browned. Serve with fresh fruit.

Place the corn on a gas burner and char until lightly colored on all sides. If you do not have a gas burner you can use a grill or your broiler. Remove the corn from the cobb and place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and season with salt and pepper to taste.
