Freezing Green Beans

Well, I had a new adventure today. I froze some green beans from the garden. I had never did that before, it was actually fairly easy. In the past to preserve our beans I had pressure canned them. In my opinion freezing is the way to go. Although I havent tasted them yet, but I will be sure to let you know how they taste when we do. Here is the steps I took to freeze them:
1. String the beans. (Jess helped with this).
2. Rinse the beans.
3. Boil water. Put the beans into the boiling water for 3 1/2 minutes.
4. Remove beans from boiling water and place into a icy cold bowl of water for 3 1/2 minutes.
5. Put beans into plastic freezer bags, remove the air, zip them up, and label them.
6. Freeze. Walla!!!!

Very easy.

My family doesn't like them frozen. It would be a lot easier wouldn't it?
