Can I freeze long beans?

I bought way too much Japanese long beans and i was wondering if I could just freeze the extra. Thanks!

Anau,
we were given some long beans last summer and had way to many. I gave them a quick blanch in boiling water then let cool, patted dry and froze them..They were just like any frozen partially cooked green type beans..Still good and easy to use.

Sure - blanch, shock, drain (a salad spinner is a great way to get excess moisture off) - then bag and tag and toss them in the freezer.

The National Center for Home Food Preservation has a great site with all of the instructions you need for Freezing Vegetables.
