Freezing Fresh Green Beans
Fresh Green Beans
Wash and drain your fresh Green Beans.
Lay them out and cut the end off.
Cut the other end off.
Cut them into pieces.
Boil a large pot of water. Blanch the Green Beans by dumping them into the boiling water for 3 minutes.
Remove and immediately dump them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process.
The ice will probably melt each time you do this so add more when it melts.
Put Green Beans in a colander to drain.
Place blanched Green Beans into serving size freezer bags and freeze. That’s all there is to it!
