    Yes, you can. I just snap them and then put them in a ziploc.

    I would freeze my fresh string beans by snapping them, then blanching them (boiling them in water for 5 minutes) put them in a ziploc and then freezing.  Make sure you drain the water out before freezing.

    Yes you can, you can freeze almost anything and it will stay fresh longer, like bread.

    Hey Ms. Lilly! I answered this b4 but I still see it's open so here goes.  Yes you can freeze string beans the same way.  Just remove the ends, snap to the size you prefer, rinse, blanche, package and freeze.  I actually learned to freeze string beans first with my Sis and then we did greens.  It's great to have them to enjoy all year long and it can be less expensive.
