    My mother in law and I canned several jars of blue lake green beans this summer. I am slowly getting into canning and hope to be able to do more in the summer of 2015 since I don’t have to study for CPA tests anymore. Woohoo!  I may write another post later on how to can green beans.  The most tedious part is preparing the green beans and removing the strings. Even though we spent couple afternoons working hard on canning the beans, it is so worth it! It’s great to be able to pull a jar of beans and warm it up and voila you have a healthy side for your meal. And let me tell you, it is so delicious. My husband and I finished a pint of green beans in one sitting. I think adding a little bit of seasoning and garlic makes them taste even better.

    If you don’t have a jar of green beans, I guess fresh beans would be just as good substitute as home canned. Steam for few more minutes until green beans are cooked and tender, but you don’t want to overcook them.

    Let me know how they turn out in the comments below.
