Can you air fry corn on the cob in the husk? Yes! Cooking corn on the cob in the husk traps in all the natural juices and creates perfectly steamed and flavorful corn. This method also prevents the corn from drying out and becoming tough, making sure that it remains tender and juicy.

📖How To Cook Air Fryer Corn On Cob With Husk

1️⃣Prepare the air fryer: Start by preheating your air fryer to 350F for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Prepare the corn: Remove any loose or damaged outer leaves from the corn. Keep the inner layers of the husks intact, as they will help steam and cook the corn.

3️⃣Arrange in air fryer basket: Place the corn on the cob in the husk into the preheated air fryer basket. You may need to cook the corn in two batches depending on the size of your air fryer.

4️⃣Air fry corn on the cob: Cook the corn in the air fryer for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the ears and the preferred level of doneness. Flip the corn over halfway through cooking for even cooking.

5️⃣Cool and remove husks: When the cooking time is up, remove the corn from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes. The husks may still be hot, so use oven mitts or a towel to handle them. Once the corn is cool enough to handle, peel back the husks and remove the silk threads.

6️⃣Season and serve: Season the corn with salt and pepper, and butter to taste and serve hot.

🌽How To Remove Corn Husks From Cooked Corn

  1. Allow the corn to cool for a few minutes until it is safe to handle.
  2. Gently peel back the outer leaves of the husk, starting from the top of the ear of corn and working your way down.
  3. Remove the silk threads from the corn by brushing them off with a damp paper towel or using a corn brush.
  4. If any husk remains, you can use a sharp knife to carefully trim it off.

👩‍🍳Chef’s Tips

  • Choose fresh, high-quality corn for the best results. Look for ears of corn that are firm, plump, and have bright green husks that are tightly wrapped around the corn.
  • Remove any loose or damaged outer leaves from the corn before cooking. However, keep the inner layers of the husk intact, as they will help steam and cook the corn.
  • Though optional, you can use cooking oil or spray to lightly coat the husks before cooking. This will help the husks to crisp up and prevent them from sticking to the air fryer basket.
  • Flip the corn over halfway through cooking to ensure even cooking.
  • Allow the cooked corn to cool for a few minutes before removing the husks. This will make it easier to handle the corn and remove the silk threads.
  • How long it takes to cook corn on the cob in the air fryer will depend on how big your corn is. Generally, it should be fully cooked in 15-20 minutes. Adjust cooking time as needed in 3-5 minute intervals.
