Can i freeze it without blanching it first?

If you do that to your digital camera you will probably ruin it.
If you're referring to green vegetables, you're in the wrong section, and the answer from my experience is....... blanching is best.

Can I freeze fresh mushroom

Mushrooms are mostly water and if you freeze them raw, they tend to become mushy. This consistency works okay in soups, casseroles, and stews, but it's not the best result you can achieve. If you prepare the mushrooms first, either using traditional steam blanching or saut?ing, you'll be able to use those mushrooms in more ways in the kitchen.
No matter which method you choose, you'll need to clean mushrooms first. Most cooks avoid washing them, because it tends to make them mushy. Check mushrooms carefully, brushing off any visible dirt. Trim stem ends. To freeze raw mushrooms, individually quick freeze them first on a parchment-lined tray. Once mushrooms are frozen, place them into freezer bags, removing as much air as possible.
If you plan to blanch mushrooms using steam, first sort mushrooms by size. This step is necessary because blanching times vary based on mushroom size. If individual mushrooms are larger than an inch across, slice or quarter them. To keep mushrooms from darkening during blanching, soak them for five minutes in a solution of 1 teaspoon lemon juice or 1.5 teaspoons citric acid in 1 pint of water.
To blanch, add mushrooms to steamer basket over boiling water. Steam whole mushrooms 5 minutes, buttons or quarters 3.5 minutes, and slices 3 minutes. Cool mushrooms quickly by placing them in ice water for the same amount of time you steamed them. Strain, then place mushrooms in airtight freezer bags or containers.
Frozen steamed mushrooms work well in any dish, from stroganoff, to quiche, to pizza. For dishes not heading into a hot oven, like soup or quinoa, add frozen mushrooms about 20 minutes before cooking time is complete. If adding frozen mushrooms to stir fries, add just a few at a time to avoid cooling the pan. For best flavor, use frozen steamed mushrooms within a year.

Another option is to saut? mushrooms before freezing. Saut? mushrooms in a small amount of hot oil or butter. Feel free to add salt, pepper, onions, or other favorite seasonings. Sautee mushrooms about 4 minutes-until they're almost fully cooked. Allow mushrooms to cool, then pack into freezer bags or containers, removing as much air as possible. You can also individually quick freeze saut?ed mushrooms on a parchment-lined tray before packing into freezer containers.
Saut?eing mushrooms before freezing produces a firmer product after freezing. Use these mushrooms in ways similar to steamed mushrooms-adding to quiche, stir fries, pizza, or pasta dishes. For best flavor, use saut?ed frozen mushrooms within nine months.

How do I freeze broccoli

preparing broccoli to freeze.
1. remove leaves & woody portions.
2. separate heads into sections & immerse in brine for 30 minutes(4 teaspoons salt + 1 gallon water) to remove insects. remove & rinse.
3.split lengthwise to no more than 1 1/2 inches across.
4. water blanch 3 minutes or steam blanch for 5 minutes. start counting as soon as you place broccoli in boiling water.
5. immediately immerse in cold or ice water to stop cooking action.
6. drain & package leaving no head space ( the less air the better, will keep longer with out freezer burn), seal & freeze.

two ways to freeze -
1. place in bags( I use quart size fro this method) remove as much air as possible & seal.
2. place broccoli on flat sheets in freezer 1-2 hours to freeze, then remove & place in bags( I use gallon size for this method, size & style of storage unite is choice of preference). with this method one can use as little or as much as needed for what you need. I use this method for my peppers & peas as well.

How do I freeze corn on the cob?

remove husks & silk.

Blanch the ears of corn in boiling water; the National Center for Home Preservation advises blanching for approximately 7 minutes for ears that are up to 1-1/4 inches in diameter, between 7 and 9 minutes for ears that are between 1-1/4 and 1-1/2 inches in diameter and 9 to 11 minutes for ears larger than 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Pull the ears of corn from the boiling water with tongs after the proper blanching time has been met.

Plunge the hot ears of corn directly into the ice water immediately after blanching. Allow the ears of corn to cool for the same amount of time used to blanch them.

Dry each ear of corn completely with paper towels before freezing. This reduces the amount of ice crystal formation on the corn while freezing, which helps prevent the corn from becoming mushy.
place in containers for freezing( I use freezer bags).
place in
