Green bean time is in full swing at my house right now! Yesterday I harvested for the third time....up to 16 quart bags in the freezer now. We prefer our green beans little and fresh....so freezing is the best option. I usually can a few quarts for green bean casserole, etc....but the rest get blanched and popped in the freezer. Then when we're ready to eat them I throw them in the steamer for a few minutes and voila...tastes like a fresh green bean!
Oh, and my green bean harvest is going along SO much easier (wink wink) since I found this gorgeous old enamel pan at my favorite "junk" store. Seriously folks, who can resist vintage enamel? Not me. It fits PERFECTLY in my sink, resting on the edges while I clean each bean. :-)
We've been busy lately...summer has a way of doing that....I'll show you what we've been up to tomorrow! (besides picking truckloads of green beans)
