So, I am trying to steer clear of canned food, but we love beans and they are so fast and easy out of the can. Then there are the lined cans, but they are 3x's the price Well, today i soaked a bag of black beans overnight, then cooked in the pressure cooker. Came out great! I got like 4 cups of beans out of a bag of dry beans (less than a dollar!). I was pretty stoked. I froze two baggies of them, hope that keeps, according to the internet it does.
my mom always boils and freezes beans in advance and they keep really well and taste great.
i dont bother soaking beans, i have to use the pressure cooker at this altitude anyway and soaking them doesn't make a difference.
we eat central american red beans the most, black beans second. i usually have to get the nicaraguan beans from california since i cant find them here. i get a few 5lbs bags that last me forever.
yah. it takes that long in the pressure cooker. i've tried less time but they were still too firm. on the stove when i lived at sea level it would take 2-3 hours for the red beans.
all this bean talk is making me want some red bean soup!
