It’s best to cook corn as soon as possible after it is picked or purchased. This is because, after being picked, the corn’s natural sugars gradually convert to starch, which, in turn, lessens the corn’s natural sweetness. Because corn is highly perishable, it should be refrigerated immediately after you buy it. Fresh corn can also be purchased canned or frozen.
