Freezing Beans

Our beans have been prolific, so we’ve been having them a lot. Three bean salad, beans and olives, beans sauteed on the grill, you name it. But because of our over consumption of beans, my husband has turned into Gassy McGasserson (sorry Gary!). Thus, it’s time to give them a rest.

Freezing beans is a cinch. Just blanch them and bag them. It doesn’t matter how little or how much you do. First, get a pot of boiling water going on the stove. And get a bowl of ice water ready. Wash and cut the beans. Boil for 2-3 minutes. Immediately take them out of the boiling water and throw them in the ice bath. It will stop the cooking. Bag them up in ziplocks, and throw them in the freezer. You’ll have beans whenever you want them for sauteing, stir-frying, and adding to dishes.
