Even as summer draws to a close, our late season crops continue to produce amazing harvests. After a few soaking rains, I simply can’t keep up with my pole beans! We plant the variety Blue Lake Pole Bean and use a cattle panel trellis to support the growth. Because we love fresh green beans (our favorite recipe is a simple sauté with sesame oil, soy sauce, and sesame seeds) we eat most of our harvest fresh from the garden. However, we try to preserve green beans for winter enjoyment with at least one of the following methods: canning, freezing, dehydrating, or fermenting.
Four Ways to Preserve Green Beans
Canning Green Beans
Freezing Green Beans
Dehydrating Green Beans
Fermented Green Beans
This is probably my favorite method of preserving green beans, and I use the same exact recipes and techniques that I use to make pickles.
