>> Wednesday, August 13, 2008 – Bloom - where are you planted?
The green beans are plentiful now. Having the freezer filled with garden produce is such a nice sight. I was reading up on blanching and found this site. With so many beans, I had already decided that I was only going to take the stem-end off and then freeze them whole otherwise it would have been a very long event and the above-listed site says that blanching them whole helps them to retain color and nutritional value. That settles the deal for me.
PS - Notice how the purple beans turned green after blanching?
