    jorgydee's Note:

    I got this recipe from my sister-in-law. I have always thought there was no way to freeze either carrots or green beans to have them taste good. Well I was wrong and I didn't believe until I tasted hers. Just like fresh from the garden or very very close to it. I have done both but mostly I just do beans this way.

      NOTE: To remove air from the bag, I use an ordinary straw to suck air from the bag, holding bag tight around the straw. Twist bag then attach twist tie.
