With almost 2 lbs of green beans, I need to put them up for a later date. It’s not really enough to can in a pressure canner, but I can freeze them.

First I washed, cleaned and sorted them into three sizes.

Boiling water,  blanch for 3 minutes.
Ice water plunge for 3 minutes.










We’ve had a vacuum sealer for years that has gone unused. I broke it out to see if it still works.











All three done! This took less than 30 minutes to do, and now, in the depth of winter we’ll have just picked greenbeans with butter, or in a soup or stew. I look forward to it.

Eat Well!
