Freezing corn on the cob.

Posted: 28/08/2014 at 12:30

For stripping, just the niblets, I half cook the cobs, then strip them, freeze in bags, then cook them a very short time in a little water or butter. They've been OK, definitely not sloppy. I usually freeze them whole though, but it takes up space.

What do you mean "lost them" Alan? I use both those sorts of bags, so long as the air is kept out they should be OK.

Not what it looks like

My 11 yr old Border Collie has bad breath. The vet says he is fine for his age but his teeth are a bit dirty as he has an overbite and finds it hard to chew. But the vet said cleaning them would be expensive because of the blood tests and the general anaesthetic and the anaesthetic is not without risk. He said it wasn't worth it.

Some varieties of holly have smooth edges anyway. Don't cut the branches for that, cut the bush to keep it the shape you want.

That's what I do, but with butter, like your OH.

Thank you for all your good wishes, much better now, had soup and toast which didn't hurt. Have done HW, raining

Hope muscle is better soon BM, funny how that happens sometimes.

I thought BH was Better Half, but I don't think Dove's plumber is that.

My thin wardrobe is in the spare room. Every now and then my daughter takes something. Hate throwing clothes away, I may get thinner.
