As summer rolls, it’s time to take advantage of awesome June produce, the green beans! You can look forward to a few months of great prices, big harvests, and lots of good deals at the farmer’s markets. But all this bounty could lead to an overabundance. This begs the question…
“What are the Best Ways to Use Green Beans?”
So glad you asked! Here are a few of my favorites on the awesome G.B. (which you know I love ).
And if you’re missing out on getting them in your garden, it’s never too late to start!
Have you thought about canning green beans? (if you’ve never used a pressure canner before this is an amazing place to start). It is simple and fun! Way back in 2013, I was still learning how to can, and it’s fun to remember how excited I was!
This is super simple and well worth the effort (although some may think I’m going above and beyond! To blanch or not to blanch, that is the question. ha!) I love having frozen beans waiting for me in the middle of the winter. Defrost them, and add them frozen to a soup… You can’t go wrong!
Maybe my favorite way is to eat them! I have so many great recipes that it’s hard to choose a favorite. My favorite one is : Roasted Green Beans (yum!)
Okay, I have to stop because I’m getting hungry! Is it lunchtime yet? There are so many good ones, it’s hard to choose.
Tell me, what’s your favorite option?
