Green Bean Casserole – Canned, Frozen, or Fresh?

There are three major ways of preserving Green Bean Casserole – fresh, frozen, and canned. You can opt for any method that you’re convenient with.

In November, green beans are not always in season, so people tend to get it earlier and preserve it in a refrigerator. They most times taste like the fresh ones if preserved properly.

Whisk everything together with the flour, and have it cooked for 2 minutes until it turns golden. Season the milk with salt and pepper, and whisk the mixture. Allow it to simmer and cook for 4 minutes until it gets thick. Bring it down from the heat, and blend with green bean mixture
