Zucchini and French Beans - Freezing

The heat is bringing the plants on rather quickly and although I have no wish to stand there cooking away, I have frozen 1 lb of french beans and 1 lb zucchini/courgettes.
Just in case its useful to you:

French Beans

Wash, trim ends of and cut into bite sizes. Blanch for 3 mins in boiling water, cool quickly under cold tap, put in marked freezer containers and freeze. Cook as normal.

Zucchini

Cut and slice, blanch for 1 min, cool quickly under cold tap, put in marked freezer containers and freeze. To cook, fry in a small amount of butter.


I was hoping to go and pick some strawberries today but the heat is just too much to move in, hence working on the computer inside.
