Full Answer

Kale can actually have a better flavor after being exposed to a frost or frozen. The leaves should be cleaned and prepped to be blanched for two to three minutes, with the younger more tender leaves only blanched for around half that time. The leaves should be allowed to cool and be completely dry before freezing. Water that remains on the leaves could cause the kale to get freezer burn and ruin the taste.

    A:

    Both popped and unpopped popcorn can be frozen, but it can affect the quality. Unpopped popcorn that has been frozen does not pop as well, and frozen popped popcorn that was opened becomes dry and stale. Popped popcorn in an airtight sealed bag should freeze fine.
