Not a real good idea. Flavor and texture will be compromised.

I froze green beans one year. During the blanching I added a pinch of baking soda to take out the bitter taste that my mother-in-law told me they would have due to the freezer drying them. I placed them in plastic bags. Come winter, they were bitter and we couldn't eat them. What happened?

I've eaten homegrown frozen green beans all my life and have never thought them to taste bitter. I've never used baking soda during the blanching process, just follow the instructions in my kerr/ball canning book.

Whats the best way to freeze green beans so they will taste fresh?

By Debbie

My opinion of frozen green beans isn't real great. Taste wise they are OK, but no matter how they are frozen, whether home frozen or purchased, they are tough. When I had a garden I always canned the green beans for that reason. The canned ones don't look as nice, color wise, but all the people I have known prefer them over frozen.

Blanch the beans for three minutes. As soon as the blancing is done immediately give the beans an ice water bath to stop the cooking process. Pat beans dry, place in zip lock freezer bags and remove as much air from the freezer bags as possible because both patting dry and removing air help to reduce freezer burn.

How do I freeze green beans from the garden?

By Cindy S

Drop green beans in boiling water for a 3 minutes. They will turn bright green, the scoop out and put in cold water. Then a couple minutes later, put them in a colander to drain. Put in Ziploc bags and try to get all the air out/run thru a foodsaver and freeze. Keeps for a year if done with the foodsaver.

How do I freeze small batches of green beans?

By June from MS

Answers

Blanching green beans before freezing allows them to keep their color.

1.) Fill a pot with water
2.) Put the green beans in a strainer on top of the water
3.) Bring the water to a boil and steam for 3-5 minutes, covered
4.) Quickly put green beans in ice water to cool down for about 6 minutes
5.) Place green beans in a sealed bag inside freezer

I like to grow Royal Burgundy bush type green beans. They are a wine color on the bush. Then they tell you when you have blanched them enough by turning green in the water. That's when I take them out, cool in ice water, then freeze whatever amount you want in freezer bags. There are just two of us to feed now, so a couple handfulls per bag is enough for a meal.

How do I freeze fresh green beans?

Answers

Clean them and put them in a pot of boiling water for 1-2 minutes - this is blanching - it will seal in their green color. After taking them from pot, put them in a ice water bath. Drain, dry them with paper towels, place them on cookie sheets and freeze. Then you can pack them in freezer bags in whatever amount you desire. Be sure to mark bags the dates - when ready to use, prepare as you normally would. Delicious with chopped onions and bacon!

I do it the same way by blanching. Only after they dry I toss into the baggies. But I like the idea of freezing them on a baking sheet first.
