Get your fresh green beans (by purchasing them or sourcing them from the garden).
Cut off the ends on both sides.
Cut into small bite sized pieces (optional)
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Prepare a large bowl filled with ice cold water. Set aside.
Add green beans to the pot. Boil for 2 minutes.
Rinse with cold water.
Place beans in the bowl filled with ice cold water for 3 minutes.
Pat dry with paper towels. Make sure they are dry, so they don't stick to each other once frozen.
Place on a baking sheet, leaving some space between the beans.
Freeze on the baking sheet for 1 hour.
Take out of the freezer and place in zip lock bags. Alternatively use a Food Saver machine to seal the green beans before freezing.
Freeze for up to 3 months.
