Sweet corn is a variety of maize. Its kernels are tender, delicious and eaten as a vegetable in many cuisines worldwide. In contrast to traditional field corn, sweet corn crops harvested when their corn-ears just reached milky stage. Its cobs either used immediately or frozen for later use since sugar content quickly turns into starch.
Store corn in an air-tight container or tightly wrapped airtight bag in the refrigerator if you do not intend to cook it on the day of purchase. Do not remove its husk since this will protect its flavour.
