------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

We have covered canning green beans beforeĀ  for long term storage. But did you know that you can also can dry beans? This is especially helpful for the end of season when all your beans have dried up in the garden.

You will need your pressure canner for this method. Although you can can beans without soaking (see video below) we shall first look at the method that involves soaking them overnight. This works for all kinds of beans from pinto, navy, kidney and even navy beans.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • dried beans
  • water
  • pressure canner
  • canning jars
  • canning utensils
  • large bowl
  • large pot
  • kitchen towel
  • whey vinegar (optional)
  • lemon juice (optional)

You’ll need to soak your beans in a large bowl overnight before you can begin the canning process, just make sure there is no debris in your beans before soaking it. In the morning you can rinse your beans, and then place in a large pot leaving them to boil for a few minutes.

You can then use a ladle to transfer your beans into hot canning jars. Leave about once of space below the rim and fill the jar with the same water from the pot. Screw on the lids tight. Process pint jars at 10 pounds pressure for 75 minutes, quarts for 90 minutes. Use the jar lifter to lift jars out of the canner and place on kitchen counter to cool and seal. Store your jars in a cool dry place.
