1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup melted butter
Salt and pepper, to taste
12 ears of corn
- Preheat the grill to high.
- In a bowl, combine the maple syrup, butter, salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Remove the first layer of husks from each ear of corn.
- Gently spread out the remaining husk leaves, remove the corn silk and baste the corn with the maple-butter mixture. Pat the remaining husks back around the cob and wrap each in aluminum foil.
- Place corn on the grill and close the cover.
- After four minutes, give the corn a quarter turn and close the cover. Repeat three times until all four sides have been grilled (a total of 16 minutes). Unwrap, remove husks and enjoy!
