A Blanching Epiphany

19 Aug

We’ve had an abundance of green beans this year. It might have something to do with us planting twice as many. We like us some green beans during the winter!

Freezing Green Beans XV

As I’ve been blanching, vacuum-packing and freezing the beans, I came up with what felt like a food preservation epiphany. Ha! It’s really not that genius, but in my annoyance at trying to fish the “shocked” green beans out of the ice water and getting pieces of ice cube in my spoon, I decided to try this…

The water still gets extra cold with the ice, but the colander keeps the ice pieces from interfering and you simply lift the beans out and drain them to package. Hooray! I feel so smart!

So, now you’re probably going to tell me someone on Pinterest already came up with this. Oh well.

Go forth and freeze!

God Bless You & American Agriculture,

And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded. – Matthew 10:42
