Cynthia is a trusted source on Bread/Baking.
Absolutely! In fact, teach people to blanch a big batch of them when they get them home from the store. That way, they're always ready for something - a salad, or to be finished off as part of dinner. Plunge them into boiling water for 5 minutes, them lift them immediately into an ice water bath. Let cool completely, then drain and refrigerate.
You betcha! We did this at work too.
For me, 5 minutes is a long time. Depending on the amount in the batch I would suggest tasting a piece after 1 minute, then in 30 second intervals. No point going to all that work to get limp over cooked beans.
Cynthia is absolutely correct - I do this all the time.
