Pressure Canning Beans:
The first step is to rinse the beans, pulling out any small rocks or split beans. The split beans will float to the top when the beans are covered with water. Place these beans into a very large stock pot or divide the bag up into 2 smaller pots. You will want to leave room for bean expansion, so don’t fill the pot up to the top!
Next, you will either soak the beans overnight or do the quick soak method. I used the quick soak method, which is to bring the water to a boil, then turn the burner off and let the beans soak for one hour. When either time is up, drain the soaking water. You will use fresh water to can the beans. This is supposed to result in less gas from your beans.
Remembering pressure canning 101 basics, we start with clean jars, lids & rings in warm water, and the pressure canner on the stove. Also, please follow the instructions specific to YOUR canner for the amount of water to be used.
Next up, it’s time to begin the canning process!
