Crops & Varieties: Beans (Green)


Quick tips

To prepare, blanch in boiling water for about a minute with no lid and shock them in ice cold water. You can then saute them, eat them blanched, or  toss them into salad or soup -- get creative!
 
Try cooked beans with your favorite flavor combinations: lemon and basil, garlic and chili powder, or coriander and cumin.
 

Storage

Beans keep well frozen. Blanch them in boiling water for one minute and shock them in ice cold water. Lay them flat on a tray or pan and freeze in a single layer. Once frozen, toss them in a freezer bag - they’ll keep for months this way.
