  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed


  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the honey, pepper sauce, garlic and seasonings until blended; heat through. Brush some over corn.
