    I have had much success with canning dry beans. I have bought dry beans from the store and canned them. I use about 1/2 a jar of dry beans and fill the rest with water and some salt. Pressure can for I THINK an hour. They come out great. However, my favorite way to can shell beans is to pick them when they are mature but NOT dry! If I don’t get enough at once, I throw them in the freezer until I have enough to can. In this case, I put about 2/3 a jar of beans and fill with water etc, since they don’t have to swell.

    I have a problem in my garden of beans rotting or starting to grow in the shell. Picking and shelling before they dry minimizes waste for me.
