Yes. Pick the stems out as much as possible.
Put in blender. You want chunky, not fine. So easy on the blender.

Find a recipe (Sure-Jell has one) and go for it.

I've made that Sure-Jell recipe. Easy enough and good. Used an immersion blender as I recall.

Well, I'm a couple of days late, but I picked about 8 gallons of green beans from a neighbor's garden -- they were going to be traveling and no time to do it. I canned 47 pints of green beans from that picking.

Today in my little garden, tomatoes, cucumbers picked... small amounts. I need to feed my tomatoes... getting blossom end rot on a couple of the plants.

Well for his uses maybe not over run.
