ISO help freezing freshly picked soy beans

This is my first year growing soy beans in the garden, and i was blessed wit h a significant surpluss. When I buy edamame in the store, it is frozen. So, my question is, to freeze my excess beans, should I blanch them first ? or can i just freeze them as is? or, it just doesnt matter ?

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
