Freezing String Beans

Vote for this contest contender!

In the past, I only canned string beans until I found that they are also good frozen. The taste and texture is different, but they are really good sautéed in a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

When I prepared these for freezing, I forgot to save out some to cook for supper so I sautéed a few that I had blanched. They were very tasty. No leftovers for another meal.

Usually when cooking fresh green beans, I simmer them in salted water and a little bacon drippings. We like them prepared both ways.

To freeze:

  1. Select young tender green beans.

  2. Wash them and cut the ends off.

  3. Blanch in boiling water for 2 minutes.

  4. Cool and drain.

  5. They are ready to package and put in the freezer.

  6. Saute when you want to cook them.
