    No recipes, but a suggestion. Don't put bacon in them before canning. My parents tried to can cooked beans with bacon and onion one time and the bacon/bacon grease became rancid and they had to be thrown away.

      We LOVE fresh green beans, steamed or boiled and tossed with a mixture of browned butter and bread crumbs.. delicious..

        Ruby, again, no real recipes, just suggestions. Typical beans, onions, new spuds and bacon. Just don't freeze the spuds--come up granular and soggy. If you've never had a green bean quiche, well, I'm sorry for that. Yummo. Alsasian green bean soup with a veal broth---TDF!, Lastly, we use alot of green beans in our oriental cooking, and blanch some for great green salads, as well as kick butt 3 gean salad. Spoke too soon, don't forget stir frying lotso vegs and tossing in w/ sesame seeds, almonds, terriaki sauce, and any other vegs you have on hand--serve w/ rice or egg noodles. Good luck, Laura

          I don't can much, but I would blanch and freeze them.

            My simple canning recipe is this:
            In a quart jar or half gallon jar, fill with 1/4 cubed cooked ham, fill 1/4 full of raw cubed potatoes. Fill remaining half with fresh green beans. Top with 1/2 tsp. salt. Add boiling water to top. Seal. Pressure can for recommended time. To eat, just dump into pot and heat. The flavor is amazing.

            Otherwise, blanch and freeze.
            A man of words and not of deeds, is like a garden full of weeds.

              SORRY I HAVE TO DISAGREE. I THINK THE BEANS TURN OUT RUBERY WHEN YOU DO THIS. AGAIN JUST MY OPINION. I WOULD CAN THEM.

                I 'd do the same. Been freezing green beans for almost forty years and never had them turn out rubbery.
                I organize chores into catagories.
                Things I won't do now; things I won't do later; things I'll never do.

                  I blanch them, fill quart zip lock bags with beans and fill with water, seal. Store in freezer. Thaw them out and cook as you like.

                      I must have done the same thing, I tried them once, and ended up tossing them. Mine were rubbery, too. LOL

                            Thanks you for all your posts.
                            Now I'm just a little confused.
                            So, Green beans do or Do NoT get rubbery
                            when you freeze them?
                            Is there a special way to do it?
                            I have a food saver. Will that keep them
                            from getting rubbery?

                              Cook the green beans in a pan with some water.....for about 7 minutes.
                              Add some sugar and some salt to water.
                              When the green beans are done to your liking, melt some butter in a pan until it is lightly brown and add some fresh sage leaves.
                              Pour this brown butter over the beans.
