    I am a huge fan of Mexican street corn so I was inspired by the flavors and ingredients of New England to put a Northeastern spin on this Mexican classic.

    Technique tip: Smearing the corn with a mayo is an easy way to boost its flavor and helps make all the seasonings stick.

    Preparation

    For the maple mayo:

    In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir well to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

    For the bacon jam:

    In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine all the ingredients. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened and the mixture is a jam-like consistency.

    To cook and serve:

    1.

    Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

    2.

    Grill the corn until nicely charred and fully cooked.

    3.

    Spread the maple mayo all over the corn and top with the bacon jam, crumbled cheese, sliced jalapeno and chives.
