I couldn’t find any fresh corn so I used the pre cooked corn found in most supermarkets that are in the veg section wrapped in plastic, they worked perfect but if you can find fresh stuff even better! If you haven’t got an air fryer they can be done in the oven but they will definitely need more time.
