How can I prevent vegetables, like green beans, from sticking together?


After blanching and draining well, spread in a single layer on a baking sheet or tray and cover them. Put in the freezer. Freeze vegetables until firm and then transfer to freezing containers. Label and return to the freezer. The vegetables will not stick together. This method is especially good for green beans, peas, whole kernel corn, and small mixed vegetables. Do not freeze asparagus on trays; it will curl, making it difficult to pack into containers.
