A time for corn harvest is not complete without enjoying and feasting on corn, however it is  cooked.   We used to often boil corn when we have a  fresh harvest.

But this time around, we usually use our trusty air fryer to cook corn simply because it is faster and overall more convenient.

This air fried corn is great for snacking or when the family is enjoying outdoors.  It is also very filling.

You only need a few items to make this delicious corn on the cob in air fryer.  They are the following:

  • Sweet Corn

How to Cook Air Fryer Corn on the Cob

Start by cleaning the corn by removing its husk and silk. Cut the corn into half.  You may not cut it if you have a big air fryer and can accommodate the whole corn ear.

Alternatively, if you have smaller air fryer like mine, you may cut the corn in half or in your desired size.

Rub olive oil all over the corn.  Then season it with salt and pepper.

Place them in the air fryer  at 390F and cook for 8-10 minutes.  Once done, transfer them to a serving plate and sprinkle with the cheese powder and enjoy.
