Blanching and Freezing Green Beans
1Wash the green beans in cold water.
2 Trim the ends and cut into smaller pieces.
3 Ready your pots. You’ll need one pot with boiling water; another with cold water and ice.
4 Blanch the beans for 3 minutes – just long enough to kill enzymes and bacteria.
5 Transfer beans to the ice water and cool for 3 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
6 Transfer the beans into a plastic freezer bag, label, and throw in the freezer. Done!
