This may sound a little strange and a bit dangerous, but my Dad swears by this method. Shuck corn and brush silk away. Using an electric drill with a very long, fairly large diameter drill bit, while holding each ear of corn, drill a hole through the center of the cob the length of the ear of corn. (This should also get you some help from the man in your life - the opportunity to use power tools while helping you to fill the freezer is very attractive!)
Blanche the corn in boiling water, immediately cool in ice water, then freeze in ziploc bags. To cook - drop frozen corn in boiling water to thaw and complete the cooking process. Dad's theory is that the hole through the cob draws moisture and keeps the corn from becoming mushy. Not sure if his theory is scientifically correct, but his frozen corn on the cob is great!
