Homemade Clean Beans ... STEP-BY-STEP to EASILY Sub Out Canned Beans in Recipes

Here is some information regarding how to cook homemade beans. Many recipes call for beans, but the ingredients list provides info on canned beans. I do that myself in the recipes I post to make it easier for people to enjoy the food if they are crunched for time. However it is so simple to make your own beans, particularly if you use a crockpot. You can then store them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and in freezer (in their liquid) for longer.


Here is more information on how to cook beans. Most of my knowledge on beans came from the Bean Institute, and the information in this post is based on what I learned from them. They have a fantastic site including many fabulous, clean bean recipes.
