    I would like to freeze them, but don't know if you can. You can buy them frozen, but how can I do it? I hate to see them go to waste.

    TIA

    Blanch in boiling water; boil small heads for 3 minutes, medium heads 4 minutes and large heads for 5 minutes. Cool quickly.
    Pack:
    No headspace required.

    Got this out of a Ball Blue Book.

    Select dark green, compact heads. Remove coarse outer leaves; wash and sort into small, medium and large sizes. Scald small size 3 minutes, medium size 4 minutes and large size 5 minutes. Cool, drain and pack in freezer jars or plastic freezer boxes. Seal, label and freeze.

    I have frozen them before, but I thought they had a different taste/texture afterwards. Maybe that was just me, though!
