How to Freeze Yellow Beans
I don’t know what the supply of yellow beans is like for most areas but they are only available in my area for a short period of time. And trying to find them other times of the year is near impossible. So, when they are available, I freeze them for future use.
I love both yellow and green beans but for some reason my first choice has always been the yellow. Unfortunately they are very hard to get for some reason, in my area. So to make sure I have yellow beans whenever I want them, I freeze quite a few bags when they are plentiful.

Put the yellow beans into a colander and rinse under cold water to remove any dirt. Remove the ends of the yellow beans and cut them to your desired size.
Using a large cooking pot, fill it 1/2 way with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling ,add the yellow beans and blanch for three minutes. Remove the beans with a slotted spoon and put in the bowl of ice water for about 2 minutes.
Fill the freezer bags with the yellow beans, making sure to remove as much air as possible. Label and freeze.
Yellow beans will last up to 18 months if prepared this way.
