Blanch them, that is (steam)them, for about 30 seconds, cool them with cold water. Put them into freezable containers, and just barely cover them with cold water. Then freeze. They are best if blanched and processed within a few hours of picking.

Dave,,I keep looking here to see if somebody gets your answer.They must be here looking and thinking.It is like fishing.You put the bait on the set the cork and toss it in the water..Then wait..You might see a fish or two swim by and look at the bait the mosey along.. Eventually one nibbles the bait,,Then the rest move in..They all try to grab it ,Some try to drag it under limbs..The next thing you know you have caught several nice fish.But you must be patient ..You may sit about thirty minutes and not see the cork bobble..But the fish are always there ..

Maggie blanches them and stores them in a plastic freezer bag in the freezer. I prefer them canned in quart or pint mason jars best but we no longer have the giant presure cooker required to undertake this task.
