Dried Beans Really Can Be As Easy To Use As Canned Beans!

This Sparked Me!

I know a lot of us use canned beans for their convenience, myself included. However, canned beans are more expensive and loaded with salt compared to their dry counterparts. Dry beans have the initial time requirement of soaking and cooking, but I recently discovered that you can FREEZE beans after they have been soaked and cooked. So you go through the soaking/cooking process ONCE and then have batches ready to go in the freezer! I freeze mine in 2 cup portions in ziploc bags. So easy!

    Great idea! Thanks.

    You can also get a grain mill and make them into a sort of powder to make refried beans or bean burgers in a hurry. And milling your own wheat makes whole wheat bread a much better taste.
