    How to Blanch Green Beans

    In this cooking video, I show you how to blanch (also called par boil) green beans.  It’s pretty much the same technique I use across most of my green vegetables; it’s very simple to do; and it helps ensure that you have bright green, properly cooked green beans.  Blanching green beans can also be a great time saver, as you can blanch the beans well ahead of when you actually need them, and the
