Our garden is doing so well! In the last week or so everything seems to have really come along.
Lots o' tomato action...but this post's about beans!
Here's a look at ONE day's worth of bean picking! This is the biggest mixing bowl I have. So...what to do with all these beans? Freeze them, of course! Freezing green beans is one of the easiest ways to preserve food. It's as easy as:
1. Pick green beans. Snap off ends.
2. Blanche in boiling water for 3 minutes, then plunge into ice water for 3 minutes.
3. Drain, bag, and freeze!
Of course, for more, um, specific directions, look here. Yummy!
