Blanching green beans before freezing allows them to keep their color.

1.) Fill a pot with water
2.) Put the green beans in a strainer on top of the water
3.) Bring the water to a boil and steam for 3-5 minutes, covered
4.) Quickly put green beans in ice water to cool down for about 6 minutes
5.) Place green beans in a sealed bag inside freezer

I like to grow Royal Burgundy bush type green beans. They are a wine color on the bush. Then they tell you when you have blanched them enough by turning green in the water. That's when I take them out, cool in ice water, then freeze whatever amount you want in freezer bags. There are just two of us to feed now, so a couple handfulls per bag is enough for a meal.
