GRILLED CORN ON THE COB with BACON & MAPLE MUSTARD GLAZE
- 3-6 ears corn + 1 tsp salt
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tbls dijon mustard
- Pinch of allspice (clove or cinnamon can work in a pinch)
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 6 slices of bacon or prosciutto
Clean the corn, boil in water with salt to just soften, about 5 -8 minutes.
Cook the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp, set on a paper towel-lined plate to catch grease. When cool, finely chop and place on a shallow dish..
While bacon is cooking, stir together the maple syrup, mustard and allspice.
Drain corn and set on preheated grill for 10 minutes, turning every 5 minutes until kernels are tender.
Baste the cobs with the maple glaze- let cook another 3 minutes. Remove from grill and roll in the bacon.1
