Limas

Lima Beans are one of Tim’s favorite vegetables. So now that they are coming into season here. I am getting ready to start freezing them. I think the taste is much better when Lima Beans are frozen and not canned. I hope ya’ll give my freezing method a try and let me know what you think.If you know of a better way to freeze Lima Beans please let me know. Or if you have a canning method that may be different from mine please let me know.

Freezing Fresh Lima Beans:

Select well-filled pods.Beans should be green but not starchy or mealy. Shell and sort according to size.

Water Blanch: Small beans, 1 minute; Medium beans, 2 minutes; Large beans, 3 minutes. Cool promptly in ice cold water and drain.

Pack into containers, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.

These are great.

Hope to see ya’ll soon
