When it’s summertime, I can’t help but indulge in fresh sweet corn. It’s the perfect side dish to any meal and there is so many ways to prepare it. One great way I love to do corn is roasted on the cob with honey chipotle butter. With the bold chipotle pepper, heat from the cayenne, and sweetness from the honey, its a guaranteed home-run.

total time: 20 minutes
