Green Beans (Storage + Cooking Tips)

Image result for green beans storage tips

To store them, place them in a plastic perforated bag so that they will get some air flow. Do not wash the beans or snap the ends until you are ready to prepare them. The beans are best when served shortly after harvesting, but if necessary they can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator. If beans are not going to be used within 5 days, they can be frozen or canned to preserve. They should be preserved the day they are harvested for best results.

When preparing beans, snap or cut off the stem ends. The tips can be removed if desired but they do not need to be removed. When cutting your fresh green beans up before cooking remember that the less you cut the beans up the sweeter and crisper they will be after they are cooked.
