Carefully peel back the corn husks to within 1 cm of the base, and remove the silk. Split the corn down the middle into halves and cut again into shorter lengths. Place in a deep bowl of cold water and soak for 10 minutes. Drain.
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Combine the honey with salt and pepper.
Brush the honey mixture on the sweet corn. Place the corn on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil.
Grill on the top deck of the oven for five to six minutes. Remove the tray, and add a dollop of butter mixture on each corn segment.
Continue to grill for another five to six minutes.
