Bean Harvest. | Home & Garden
After the disaster of the previous blight we experienced we've had a successful harvest of the the beans in the other row that survived! We froze about 20 cups of grean beans. We blanched them in boiling water for 3 minutes and then cooled them in an ice water bath before packing. This brief cooking period slows down the enzymatic actions that start working as soon as you pick the beans. If left unchecked these enzymes will deteriorate the flavor and color of the end product.
