Thank you so much for this most detailed article. I am new to 'preserving' so I found this article clearer than any book I have. Now, if my four dogs would stop eating my lovely beans right from my bushes, I might have some to preserve!

When using your frozen beans, while they are still in the container, rinse them under the faucet with cold water. This takes the "freezer taste" out of them. I found this out accidently when I rinsed to remove frost in the bag.
Then add a little water, bacon,onion or what ever favorite addition and boil.

Thanks for commenting, FenwickFarm! It is always nice to know someone found the article useful! I hear you on the dogs. I think she is headed to the garden to chase rabbits, and instead find she is nibbling on my veggies herself! LOL

Phizz, thanks for the pointer. I'll have to try that! I like to cook my frozen beans a very short amount of time, so they retain that crisp, almost fresh texture. Onions and bacon are always a nice addition! I also like a drizzle of herbed vinaigrette and add some halved cherry tomatoes. Such a nice color combination, and the flavor really comes out with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar!
