Easy Way to Freeze Green Beans

Step One:
Always choose the freshest green beans that you can find. Since the rabbits had a feast with my green beans this year, I started with a trip to the NC State Farmers Market.

Step Two:
Remove the ends of the green beans. Wash the green beans. Place on dish towel to dry.

Step Three:
Place in a single layer onto a cookie sheet or flat pan. This will allow the beans to freeze individually and not to be stuck together. So that if you do not want to use all the beans in a bag you are able to use only what you need and put the rest back into the freezer.

Step Four:

Place in freezer.

Step Five:
Once Green Beans are frozen. Label freezer bag. Load frozen beans into bag. Place back in freezer until ready to use.

Step Six:
Enjoy. You can either microwave or steam the frozen beans.
