"I found this in a Food Ideas magazine, and clipped it out for keeping. I have only just got around to making it and this is now my favourite way to cook corn. The family loved it and the mustard and honey is just delicious! I have also made corn and instead of microwave I put it on the B.B.Q. also very nice!"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Peel back corn husks and remove silks. Re-tie corn husks with un-waxed string. Soak corn in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes. Remove. Shake off any excess water.

Step 2

Place corn, on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 5 minutes. Turn corn over and microwave on HIGH (100%) for a further 5 minutes. Stand for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Using a wooden spoon, beat butter, honey, mustard, parsley and salt and pepper together until combined. Carefully remove husks from corn.

Step 4

Cut corn in half (I leave mine whole). Place in a bowl. Add butter mixture and turn to coat.

Step 5

Thanks for this quick and easy recipe. The honey mustard combination was great. We'll definitely do this again. Hopefully we'll do this on the grill, also. I made this for the 2019 Pick Me Recipe Tag Game. Now what to do with the extra parsley! LOL!
