Great brushed on grilled corn. Makes enough for about 6 years of corn.

This is wonderful for more than just corn! It's that sweet-heat that our family simply loves! The sweetness from the butter and honey, and the heat from the jalapenos. I think this would go great on pork, chicken, even smeared on pancakes and waffles. Because it's so hot here, I steamed the jalapeno in the microwave to soften and remove the skin and it still came out great! I also omitted the salt and used salted butter. Great recipe, thanks for sharing.
