Do I need to blanch mangetout before freezing?
I have read that some blanch before freezing and some just top and tail.
I have quite a few Mangetout 'Oregon Sugar Pod' variety to freeze.
What do most other members do, should I or shouldn't I blanch them first?

I've not frozen mange-tout (or sugar snap, which is what Oregon Sugar pod are, isn't it?), but runner beans, if you don't blanch them, they are nicer when you use them, but don't stay at their best as long as blanched ones. I would guess the edible pod peas are the same....Flowers come in too many colours to see the world in black-and-white.

Yes Hilary they are sugar snap. I think I have a dud batch though, I keep getting pods that are much darker and really too stringy to eat whole. The good ones are yummy though.Tx

Of course they won't last that long though, they will be eaten within a few months if that.
I think I may just wash, dry and top and tail them before freezing and vacuum packing them then.

Thanks for this thread! I didn't even know you could freeze mange tout! Will do that next time, as dear hubby and I are getting scared of seeing another dinner with mange tout on the plate...
