Tips & Tricks

Storing your beans

Storing your beans

Canned beans should always be stored in cool cabinets away from appliances that produce heat. Dried beans should be stored in airtight containers and used within one year of purchase. The longer you keep the dry beans, the more moisture they lose. This means that older dry beans take longer to soak and cook compared to younger dry beans.
Substituting canned beans for dried beans

Substituting canned beans for dried beans

Often you don't have the  time to soak dried beans overnight and substituting with canned beans is a great option. But remember, dried beans nearyl double in weight and volume when soaked, so the rule of thumb when substituting is used two cans of beans for every cup of dried beans.
