I suppose you go on the size but if you blanch them they'll freeze and you can eat them at Christmas 🎄

@kimmy01 Plunge then onto boiling water for no more than 1 minute then spread them out on a tray and let them go cold again before bagging and freezing. Ignore this if you know how to do do it. I use to do it to most veg from the garden ...
