Freezing Fresh Green Beans for Winter


November 30, 2010 by Sara Kreidler

We preserved a half bushel of green beans for the winter, but because time was short and my canning skills and experience are weak, we froze rather than canned the beans (next year I want to do some dilly beans, though).


  1. Rinse beans in cold water.
  2. Trim ends from beans.
  3. Blanch beans in a large pot of boiling water for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove beans from boiling water and transfer to a large bowl of ice water for 5 minutes.

  6. Transfer beans to freezer bags and freeze until ready to use.
