DIY: Preserving Green Beans

This is yet another effort to preserve food for the coming winter months. We purchased lots of green beans at our local Farmer's Market with the intention of blanching and freezing the beans.

This is probably one of the easiest vegetables to preserve for the freezer.  You simply wash the beans, place them whole in boiling water for 2-3 minutes and then place them in ice water (this is what I chose to do anyways) to stop the cooking process.  Then place them in quart size freezer bags and place in the freezer.

It's really that easy and you will have fresh green beans (these were picked the morning we preserved them) for months to come.
