Beans (French)

About Me: Fresh French beans are delicious and can be eaten raw or cooked. They are great in green bean salads, casseroles, or even as a raw snack with some dip.

To store: Store unwashed fresh beans in a cotton mesh bag, then covered reused plastic bag, or put into an airtight container. Keep fresh beans in the fridge for up to two weeks.

To freeze: Blanch washed beans for 1 minute. Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process, drain, and pack into airtight containers. Beans will not have a crunch after being frozen.
