Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, and salt. In a small bowl, stir together agave, milk and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, then stir in butter, corn and jalapeño.
  2. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, add enough oil until it reaches 3 inches deep. Heat oil over medium-high heat to 325 degrees F.
