Just a bite of one of these fritters takes me back to when my kids were young. They're all grown up now, but the tradition lives on at get-togethers, when I double, sometimes triple, the recipe. Serve fritters with maple syrup or agave nectar. —Marina Castle, Canyon Country, California

"In a local Mexican market, I bought freshly-picked corn and had the kernels cut off the cobs. I used some for this corn fritter recipe, but substituted a small minced jalape?o chile for the parsley. We served it with a roasted tomato and jalape?o salsa and everyone loved them. They're calling my fritters 'tortitas de elote.'"

"I had never made fritters before but understand they are a well known Southern snack. I made these fritters and served with soup. My family thought they were really good and I will make them again."
