Right now I am harvesting WAY more okra than I can eat alone, and I just am not having many opportunities cook my green beans.
So, what is the best method of freezing them?
Do I need to blanch these vegetables? I have sometimes heard that ALL veggies should be blanched and I have sometimes heard that only veggies that grow in the soil need to be blanched.
How do you freeze your veggies for the winter?
Is the freezing process different if you have blanched?
Oh, and at what size should I harvest my bush beans/pole beans. Does it all depend on the type of bean? Personal preference?
