Green beans -- how best to extend freshness
The green beans, or more specifically the haricots verte, from Sam's Club are very good. Only problem is they come in two 1-lb. packages. They actually keep pretty well in the vegetable bin, but I'm wondering would it extend the "shelf-life" to blanch them now or wait until I'm ready to use them. I plan to use both packages in two different salads, both of which call for blanching them.
