15 Quarts of Freezer Green Beans

The bushel box is empty and I ended up with 15 quarts of green beans for the fall/winter.  The total cost was $12 for the beans and $2 for the freezer bags. Each bag is under $1 and where can you buy fresh green beans for under a buck in the winter. It took about 3 1/2 hours to string and break the beans with a little help from hubbie and my 8 year-old for about thirty minutes. So I think it would take about 4 hours totally on my own. 

Even the flash frozen steamed green beans cost over a dollar. So I’m excited to have fresh beans all winter long.

15 quarts = a labor of love.

 

Oh, and I have my first green thumb, not from growing them, but from breaking hundreds of them 🙂
