Freezing Fresh Corn On The Cob

Have picked the corn. Can I just stick it in the freezer as is. ie with the leaves and everything attached?

Some people do, I always remove, wash and break in half and bag for freezer

Thanks Joybells.

I usually remove some (not all) of the husk, leave a couple of layers, trim, bag and freeze.

better to blanch it, it's texture and flavour will be better long term.

I have never blanched it and find that the texture and flavour are not compromised at all. There again I never have them in the freezer for a long time.
