Instructions

  • Take a step back and admire your green beans because god damn, you're amazing, you just grew green beans!
  • Trim the ends off both sides of green beans.
  • Cut the green beans in half.
  • Wash with water, making sure to get all dirt off them.
  • Dry completely. Place on a cloth towel or paper towel, allowing to dry completely. This usually takes about 20 minutes.
  • Place in freezer bags. I like to make 1 cup, 12 oz and 16 oz bags. Label the bag.
  • Freeze them!
  • Time to eat them? Depending on what you are making, defrost or place in boiling water/soup directly frozen.
