Preferred way to prepare them?
Have used the freezing method and slow thaw, even then they don't seem that good.

Put them in a bag with the air squeezed out, in the fridge for a couple of days, so they go dorment,, then, tip them in a tub full of water, place the lid on, hey presto, loverly dead maggots, that arnt scorched, stretched or mis coloured,

Buy several of those clippy boxes, half fill with filtered water, add soluble flavour, add live maggots but don't completely fill up boxes, clip lids on, put in freezer, before going fishing next time remember to allow enough time for the ice to thaw. Works well, tried and tested many, many times.

Riddle any dust off them,put a pint in a two pint box,cover,with cold water then slowly introduce boiling water,stirring all the time until they stop moving,quickly put back on the riddle and sluice cold water on them,leaves them lovely and soft and keeps their colour.

In a plastic bag live, add water to cover them and straight in the freezer, keep better in the water and don't get freezer burn.
