Green beans, what to do this summer.


Now if I can keep the bunnies from eating all my bean seedlings...

I canned 31 quarts Of blue lake green beans
from DH fall garden. Never thought about
freezing them. I love seeing them in jars in the
pantry. It's not hard either way.

If you've sat with your bowls and bags of beans, on a hot day, topping and tailing them, for canning into quarts, enough times, you find that it takes about 119 beans per jar. It's more fun to do with someone than doing it alone. We are planning a big bean year this year.

I personally prefer to freeze them. I use a salad spinner and clean towel to dry them before bagging them.But love lemon-rosemary pickled beans. A nice addition to a bean salad...
