I seem to remember reading something here before about taking it off the cob first, but I don't remember if you then have to blanch the kernels or not. Sorry.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Take your choice of how you freeze it ... on-the-cob is fine if you want.

I never had great success freezing it on the cob. I always cook mine then remove the kernals from the cob and then freeze in freezer bags.
