Soy Glazed Green Beans with Almonds

The hubby planted Red Scarlett Beans this year. I remember when I picked this batch, a while back, thinking that we might be able to have another small batch but that would be it because the vines looked empty.

I was wrong.

The bees have come out of hiding in the last month and pollinated all the pretty red blossoms on the vines and now we have lots of beans. Beans here, beans there, beans, really, everywhere.

I plan on blanching a bunch of them (via boiling water for 3 minutes or a steamer for almost 5 minutes) Then plunging them in cold water and allow to dry before putting them in plastic bags and into the freezer for use in the winter months.

One does not want to overdose on beans.
