Green beans (haricots)

Postby northernruth » Wed Sep 01, 2010 3:52 pm

I always grow French beans and usually harvest them as pods to eat as string beans. This year I missed most of them and left them to mature, have just cut some and podded them........what do you do with them? Anyone know? Can I freeze them? How do you dry them?

You can just leave them out on plates/trays to dry.. the only types of beans that you cant really dry are beans like broad beans because the skin goes really tough, not quite a yummy, but still edible I guess ;) To test if the bean is dry enough to store, dig your finger nail into the die of it, if it makes no imprint, they are dry enough. You can store beans in jam jars btw.
