How Do You Dry Beans

Fans of pole beans will know that there's one golden rule when it comes to their cultivation: keep on picking the pods if you want more to follow! The reason for this oft-quoted piece of advice is that if pods are left to mature to produce viable seed the plant will think it has done its job and will cease to form any new pods. How frustrating, then, to return from a summer holiday only to discover a host of over-ripe pods and the death knell for your ambitions of pods aplenty. This has happened to me on more than one occasion.

Cooking Dried Beans | The Joy of Cooking

Beans are an elemental food. We take them for granted because we usually buy them in a can, drain and rinse them, and then add them to other things where they fade into the background--little more than a pleasing texture or a cheap ingredient to add bulk.

But beans, along with some other stalwart foodstuffs such as rice, are an integral part of almost every culture. From the soy, mung, and adzuki beans of Asia to the cannellini beans of Italy to my grandmother's October bean patch, beans are a plentiful, inexpensive, and greatly varied source of protein and fiber.

Drying Beans & Peas

Drying beans & peas at home isn’t difficult and you don’t need any special equipment. We often grow borlotti beans, dry them and store to use in the kitchen

Dried Borlotti Beans

Runner beans and dwarf & climbing French beans where you eat the pod aren’t suitable for drying. They are better, salted, bottled or frozen. However haricot beans, where we eat the bean rather than the pod and marrowfat peas are good subjects for drying.

Why is canning dried beans a good idea?

I've caused confusion with my terminology.

When I say canned dried beans... I mean beans like pinto, navy, black...... Not green beans. The dried beans are cooked and pressure canned in liquid. Not canned dry in a jar. Hope that clears it up!

So You Like Flavor? Don't Soak Your Black Beans!

How Do You Dry Beans

I've spent my whole life soaking black beans before cooking them just like every other bean around. But Russ Parsons of the L.A. Times recently chastised me for it, claiming that un-soaked black beans are better in almost every way. I put it to the test, comparing soaked and un-soaked beans for flavor, texture, color, ease of preparation, and, er, digestibility. Guess which method came out on top?
