Canning Dried Beans or Peas
Diane Hopson Smith
The recipe is from my Presto Pressure Canner Instruction manual. The only thing different, is I added 1/2 tsp of non-iodized salt to each jar.
- dried beans or peas, pinto, navy, great northern, lima's, etc
- salt, non iodized
A) Place dry beans or peas in a large pot and cover with water. Soak 12 to 18 hours in a cool place; drain.
B) Cover beans with boiling water in a saucepan. Boil for 2 minutes and remove from heat; soak for 1 hour and then drain. (I boiled my water, and then added beans to boiling water)
NOTE: I used the "B" method.
NOTE: I drained the hot water and added fresh water.
