Corn fritters are a classic light meal, often enjoyed in late summer when the corn is plentiful. In fact this is an easy meal all year round using frozen organic corn which is available unpackaged from our freezer. Fritters are a great way to sneak all kinds of goodness into your diet (we've included seaweed granules in ours) and the kids will happily devour them - none the wiser! Separating the eggs and whipping the whites makes these fritters extra light and fluffy. Give them a go- they're guaranteed to become a family favourite!
