23 October 2010 Processing Dried Beans. 23 October 2010 Processing Dried Beans.

A variety of dried beans purchased in bulk is very low in cost. This variety is a possible replacement for meat.

Two cups (500 ml) enlarges to about four after cooking. The process is: Wash thoroughly. Boil for 20 minutes, rinse, place in pressure cooker and cook for 90 minutes. Place in open pot, add sauce, and boil for about 15 minutes to mix. Store in containers and freeze the excess. Pictures depict processing.

The sauce consists of molasses, horseradish, honey, mustard, tomato paste, and paprika. Generally it can be anything to suit one’s taste.

How timely. Hubby is making baked beans in our pressure cooker today. He usually makes them cooking the "all day" way but didn't want to today.

Got a great deal on green split peas and kidney beans in the organic bulk bins at the grocery store today. I cleaned out the container and bought 7lbs of split peas since I make alot of split pea soup in the colder months. Also bought 2lbs of red kidney beans. Each were 25¢/lb. Woohoo! :yippee:
Thanks for the step by step Durgan.:)
