    Unfortunately runner beans are nowhere near as nice after freezing as they are fresh. Frenchies freeze much better

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    Just an update. The Krisk bean slicer arrived (thank you 'long river' company) and I've done in excess of a bucketfull of runner beans with it.

    So all I have to say is BRILLIANT. The time saving is enourmous and the ease of use means I dont dread another huge haul twice a week. Top and tail bit is good but in the search for more speed i might try doing all of the ends with a knife (bunch them up and chop 6-8 at a time). None the less my new favouritist kitchen gadget of the season.

    I'm a French bean fan too, have grown runner beans for 20 years now.
