How to make corn in your air fryer

You will not need much- just corn, some butter and some salt( we don’t salt our corn on a cob thought, it already so sweet and tasty!)

Honestly i am not a huge fan of cleaning the corn. I like to get lazy and buy already cleaned corn, but hey, its twice more expensive!

Oh, by the way, did you try my latest air fryer recipes? Corn on a cob would be a perfect side dish to Air fryer pork chops or Air fryer whole chicken.

Roasting corn in the air fryer is so easy and even beginner can cook it perfectly from the first try!

How to freeze corn

When i buy it in bulk in a summertime, i take time to freeze as much as i can for winter. All i do is i am cleaning the corn and place it in the zip lock bag. Try to push all the air out of the bag before closing it.

Here is a little trick i want to share with you, i learned it from my friends dad. Grab a plastic straw, place one side in the bag, leave a little opening and try to suck most of the air out of the bag. The effect is similar to a vacuum sealer, the result will surprise you!

Keep frozen corn in the freezer or up to 6 months. Then use it on soup, grill it or boil! No defrosting needed.

You have 1 teaspoon butter listed for ingredients but no indication when to use. Is this side on corn “after” cooking?

Hi, you probably missed the instructions in the recipe card. You need to rub the butter after the corn is cooked. Hope it helps.

TBH, I had the basket air fryer, bought a new one with racks and other than placement of some items to keep them from rolling off the racks I fix everything the same as I did with the basket. :-) Thanks for the great recipes Titiana
