Corns On The Cob
You can freeze fresh corns on the cob in good condition for up to a year. Pack the cob immediately in a silky plastic bag and place in the freezer. When you unfreeze it, you’ll have crispy and scrummy corns to eat. If you buy corns that are a few days old, husk and blanch it before freezing it.
