I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Sunshine Sweet Corn from Florida. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Spring in the south is a fabulous time of year. It’s nice to get outside before the heat and humidity sky rocket. Grilling year round is pretty easy due to the mild temperatures, but when Spring brings its bounty of fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables, that’s when I really smile. Right now, the produce section of my local grocery store is bursting with color and the Sunshine Sweet Corn from Florida calls my name during each visit. I recently read about roasting sweet corn on the cob in the oven and was completely intrigued. I couldn’t wait to give it a try, but felt I needed to take the ears a delicious step further by making Honey Butter Oven Roasted Sunshine Sweet Corn.
I typically steam corn on the cob, and it disappears from the dinner table as fast as it’s served. Luckily I have a few handy helpers to make sure we have enough corn for everyone to have seconds (or thirds). Yes, I make my kids work for their dinner. If your kids like husking sweet corn too, feel free to share your fun photos via Instagram with the hashtag #HuskYeah.
Roasting Sunshine Sweet Corn in the oven could not be easier. It’s a great option when you have your hands full helping with homework or trying to get that last load of laundry put away before dinner.
I mix softened butter with honey, and generously slather the butter mixture over the clean ears of corn.
Next, I pop the corn in the preheated oven to roast. If you think you will have remaining honey butter, add a few biscuits onto the baking sheet towards the end of the corn’s cooking time. Corn on the cob and biscuits with honey butter? Your family will be smiling from ear to ear for a week.
When sweet corn is at its seasonal peak, I find myself serving it as a dinner side a few times a week. Whether we eat it straight off the cob, mixed into homemade Texas caviar or tossed into a salad, sweet corn is the perfect addition to our family meal. I can never have too many delicious Sunshine Sweet Corn Recipes. Make sure you get some Sunshine Sweet Corn while you can. The best guarantee for a delicious, sweet tasting corn is right now (April through May).
