Canning Dried Beans Update

I wanted to let you know that I have found another way to can dried beans that works better for me than the method I described in my earlier post.

Soak your dried beans overnight.  Drain.  Place in pot, well covered with water.  Bring to boil, then simmer for 1/2 hour.  Put the beans in hot, sterilized jars to 3/4 full, then fill with cooking liquid to 1/2 inch headroom.  Process at 10 lbs. pressure for 90 minutes.

This method leaves less empty space in your finished jars.

God bless,
