Today I am blanching whole beans; stem end and bug spots removed. You can do this with snapped beans also.
Put washed beans in a large pot. You don't want them very deep in the pan because you will need to stir them almost constantly. This is a 16 quart kettle.
Add a shallow layer of water in the bottom of the pan. Just enough to cover the bottom.
And now they are all bright green.
Once cooled, package and freeze. You can add the water that you cooked them in into the package if you wish.
When you need green beans for a meal, open, cook, season and enjoy.
This works for green peas also.
What garden produce are you currently enjoying?
Are green beans a favorite at your house? Canned or frozen?
