"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 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.

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!
