If you have a heap of green beans from your garden or your local Indiana farmer’s market and don’t know what to do with them, I say “freeze them.”
Preserving Fresh Green Beans
You know how it is. It seems as though there is either a bad year for green beans or an amazing year for green beans. There’s never an in-between. This year, I was able to get a bunch of green beans for an excellent price at our local farmer’s market.
There was no walking away from that one! The problem was–I didn’t know what to do with them. Time got away from me. I had to come up with some way to preserve them, and fast.
I leave canning to my husband and this time around he was too swamped with work so I thought for a bit. That’s when I realized that I could just freeze my fresh green beans. Our freezer had plenty of room. I just had to figure out how to go about it.
How To Freeze Fresh Green Beans
One word: easy! The hardest part about this method is trimming the ends. Otherwise, from start to finish it really is a breeze. You’ll wonder why you never thought to freeze fresh green beans before now.
