FOr the bext texture!
Step 1: Wash A quick rinse to get off dirt is all you need.
Step 2: Snip ends off green beans Both ends!
Step 3: Cut green beans This is an optional step but I find that it makes them easier to store. I either cut the beans in half or into 2 inch segments.
Step 4: Blanch green beans Blanching green beans before freezing helps them to retain that beautiful green color and crisp texture when you go to enjoy them. Skipping blanching your green beans might result in your beans having a mushy texture once defrosted.
Step 5: Dry and freeze beans Remove green beans from ice bath with the slotted spoon, tongs or by pouring into a strainer. Spread out on a baking sheet in an even layer and pat dry with a towel or paper towel.
Step 5: Freeze green beans Place green beans on the baking sheet in your freezer and let freeze for 4-6 hours on the baking sheet. This step will help the beans to freeze individually instead of freezing in a clump and will make it easier to portion out when going to use.
Step 7: Transfer frozen green beans to freezer-safe container Once the beans are frozen, transfer them from the baking sheet to an air-tight freezer safe container.
