Kicking the Canned Bean Habit *aka* Cooking Dried Beans

Posted on | March 30, 2012 | 8 Comments

Cooking dried beans is not near as intimidating as it’s made out to be. Quite the contrary. While it does take time, hands on time is minimal.

    What do you turn the crock pot on to? High? Low?

    Hello! I love the idea of using your slow-cooker for this process! I just recently started canning my own dried beans and love that process! I can ‘can’ up to twenty pints at a time! I love canning, but during the canning process, I had extra beans so I froze them. I love learning new things that make life a little easier! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

    I like to can mine, too, but we’ve been through a rough patch. Freezing is a great interim for me, and I can keep beans available. Thanks for stopping by!
