  • cup pure maple syrup

  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled

  • 6 ears fresh corn on the cob with husks


  1. In a small bowl combine maple syrup and half of the crumbled bacon; set aside.

  2. To prepare corn, pull back husks from the cobs, leaving husks attached. Remove silks. With husks pulled back, use kitchen scissors to trim off about 2 inches of the husks (so each ear of corn looks like it's wearing a skirt). (Or tie back with 100% cotton kitchen string.)

  3. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above the pan. Place corn on grill rack over drip pan. Brush with some of the maple syrup mixture. Cover and grill for 30 to 35 minutes or until corn is tender, turning and brushing with some of the maple syrup mixture every 10 minutes. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust heat for indirect cooking. Place corn on grill rack over unlit burner. Grill and brush as above.)

  4. Brush the remaining maple syrup mixture over cooked corn. Sprinkle with the remaining bacon before serving.
