Putting Soybeans Away

Soybeans1SoybeansThis is half of a raised bed’s worth of soybeans that we harvested this morning.  We cut off the roots and brought the entire plants up to our back porch where we could work in relative comfort.  They were harvested, rinsed, and boiled in their pods for 3 minutes.  Then we took them out back again and removed the beans from the pods.  Those were then divided into meal-sized freezer bags and stashed in our chest freezer for the winter months ahead.  We’ll need to do it again tomorrow.
