How many lbs of green beans should I freeze for a family of 3 for 1 year?
By Alicia from Arlington Twp., MI
Depends entirely on how well those 3 people like green beans, and how much of other types of green vegetables you have to freeze. How many times a week do you want to eat green beans, and how many will those 3 people eat at one meal? When you have determined how many green beans you'll be eating in a week, then multiply that by 52 weeks.
A good guess would be at least 104 pounds of green beans. That would allow your family of 3 to eat about 2 pounds of green beans each week for the year. Those 2 pounds will allow for a few leftovers to toss into a nice pot of vegetable soup each week.
Hope this helps.
