Preparing Fresh Green Beans

Nothing tastes as good to me as home canned green beans in the middle of winter, which is why I wanted to share the process of preparing fresh green beans with you.

The first step is to rinse off the green beans and then start snapping both ends off of the green beans.

Then snap each green bean in half – unless it’s extra long and then you can snap it into thirds.

Basically each green bean piece needs to be approximately two inches long – but don’t overthink this step!

Before I can these, I will fill the bowl with water several times and dump it through a strainer just to rinse them off a few more times. Click for the recipe I use.
