Best Ways To Store And Use Green Beans

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store green beans.

Store unwashed green beans in the refrigerator in a breathable bag in the high-humidity drawer.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4°C.

Can I Freeze It?


All beans can be frozen! Whether raw or cooked, store beans in a sealed container before freezing.

Fresher For Longer

Beans will keep fresher for longer if left whole in their original packaging in the fridge. When you’re ready to use them up, wash under running water and chop.

Use It Up

Green beans are a great addition to stir-fries, casseroles or salads, as well as on their own as a healthy snack.

Did You Know?

Crunchy, slightly sweet and perfect right off the vine or as a dinner ingredient, green beans, snap peas and fresh peas are fragile vegetables. They quickly degrade in quality, so try to eat them as soon as possible.
