GRILLED CORN WITH SPICY HONEY BUTTER

It is August in Chatham-Kent and we all know what that means – FRESH CORN!!! I absolutely love fresh corn on the cob and I will sometimes have it 2 or more times a week in August and September. I try to support local by getting it from farmer’s stands. It also tastes way better too. Having corn so often, I am frequently looking for new ways to serve it – not for myself (just salt and butter is all I need!) but for my family. This recipe is great because with just a few ingredients, you can really up your corn on the cob game! Charred over the grill and slathered in a homemade honey butter, this corn has layers upon layers of flavor thanks to sweet honey, spicy cayenne pepper and vegetable seasoning.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup (125 milliliters) (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) honey
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) vegetable seasoning
  • 1/4 tablespoon (1 milliliter) ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) cider vinegar
  • 4 ears fresh corn

Directions

  1. Mix butter, honey, vegetable seasoning and ground cayenne pepper in small bowl until well blended. Set aside. Remove husks and silk strands from corn.
  2. Grill corn over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally.
  3. Spread butter mixture over corn. Serve immediately.
  4. Enjoy!
