Extra Sweet Kickin' Corn

Updated on February 23, 2010

This is a simple and quick side dish I created  out of culinary boredom.

My family loved it and felt it made an excellent addition to the family cookbook,

which surprised me cause my kids don't like pepper.

This dish has a wonderful balance of sweet and spicy and can be prepared with

canned frozen or fresh corn.

What you need:

1 can of whole kernel sweet corn or 2-3 cups of frozen corn

3 tbls butter

1 tbls of honey

1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper

Pinch o' salt or Garlic Salt


1. Melt butter and honey in frying pan on medium heat.

2. Add the can of corn (drained). If using frozen add 1/4 cup water

3. Cook for 8-10 min on medium heat stirring occasionally.

4. Salt to taste.

5. Spoon, serve and enjoy.

Direction for fresh on the cob:

Increase butter to 1/2 stick

1. Melt butter and honey together in microwave or small sauce pan.

2. Whisk in cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp salt.

3. Peel back husks of the corn, brush butter mix on the cob, and re-wrap ear with husks.

4. Grill or bake on rack in oven for 10-15 min @ 350 degrees F or until tender.

5. Remove husks and serve.
