Good moooorrrrrrning everyone! It's Tuesday, and in central Ohio it feels like FALL! (which makes me smile a little bit, I'm not gonna to lie)
I have run into the issue of having too much CSA produce than I can down in one week, so I have decided to start freezing what I can. This week: GREEN BEANS! Oye... I had 3 whole bags of green beans sitting in my fridge and I surely didn't want to waste them!
After doing some internet research, I figured out how to properly freeze them. Here's the scoop:
Wash and trim the beans
Boil or steam them for 3-5 minutes (until the color is BRIGHT green)
Run the boiled or steamed beans under cool water
Place on a baking sheet or in a ziplock bag to freeze
Will last 6 months
SO, here it is in pictures!!
Fresh (massive amounts of) green beans!!
Getting my pot ready to go. Water is almost boiling. Like the book in the background HAHA!
Washed and trimmed green beans, getting lightly steamed.
After steamed and cooled, into the baggies they go! It's freezer time.
