How Many Cups of Fresh Green Beans Equal A Pound?

I have come to find that a kitchen scale is one of those things that would come in REALLY handy when canning. Almost every canning recipe I’ve looked at measures in pounds. Like right now I’m up to my eyeballs in green beans, but I have no idea how many pounds I have.

So, I’ll measure in cups.

After doing a little search, I’ve discovered that 3 Cups of fresh green beans trimmed (meaning the tips have been broken off) equals approximately 1 pound.

If any of you just happen to be working with fresh green beans, and you have a kitchen scale, would you mind verifying this for me??

Hopefully that’ll be helpful to somebody 🙂
