How to Can Dry Beans


  • dry beans
  • salt
  • water


  1. Rinse the beans and soak them overnight in water at a ratio of 1 part beans, 4 parts water.
  2. In the morning, rinse the beans again and then add them to a stock pot with at least double the water as beans.
  3. Bring the water to a boil for about 30 minutes until the beans are just soft enough to cut through but not mushy.
  4. Ladle them into a pint-sized canning jar, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, and then fill the jar with cooking water, leaving 1″ headspace.
  5. Can them at 11 pounds of pressure for 75 minutes. (Be sure to read about safely using a pressure canner first or watch At Home Canning for Beginners and Beyond which I highly recommend.)
