Can green beans be frozen until enough are collected to then can?
No once they have been froze you can't can them they would be way to soft and mushey.
I prefer canned to frozen but if you do not have enough I would freeze them, so they won't go to waste.
As long as you don't cook them before you freeze them you will be fine. Think of frozen green beans from the store. When they thaw they are practally raw and they have even been blanched a little. If you don't like the results you don't have to do it again but I think you will be happy with it.
Never heard of canning something that's been frozen. If you are going to can anything it should be as fresh as possible. I can't see going to all that work and having something you probably will not be able to eat. You might try canning another vegetable with the same process time to fill up your canner.
