Does anyone have a recipe/failsafe instructions for how to can green and yellow beans? Every year I grow them and every year I end up giving tons of them away when they're freshly picked because I have so many. I tried freezing some once but that didn't go so well. I don't know if I didn't blanch them properly or if the problem was the beans themselves (back when the garden was new the soil wasn't as good plus it didn't get a lot of water as we used to have a shallow dug well that sometimes went dry).
The frozen beans turned out really tough and tasteless, I ended up throwing them out or feeding them to the chickens or something. I'm not really a big fan of frozen beans anyhow so I'd like to learn how to can them. Seems silly to give them away now and then end up buying canned beans in the winter
