Processing Dried Beans

Postby Durgan » Sun Oct 24, 2010 1:46 am 23 October 2010 Processing Dried Beans.

A variety of dried beans purchased in bulk is very low in cost. This variety is a possible replacement for meat.

Two cups (500 ml) enlarges to about four after cooking. The process is: Wash thoroughly. Boil for 20 minutes, rinse, place in pressure cooker and cook for 90 minutes. Place in open pot, add sauce, and boil for about 15 minutes to mix. Store in containers and freeze the excess. Pictures depict processing.

The sauce consists of molasses, horseradish, honey, mustard, tomato paste, and paprika. Generally it can be anything to suit one’s taste.
