canned dried beans

this makes for an easy side dish for any meal or the main course. the result is what day-long simmered beans are like except they are always just a few minutes away, once canned.

soak beans overnight
drain and fill pint canning jars 2/3 full of swollen beans
1 clove garlic
1 - 2 table spoons chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
top off with hot water 1" head space

pressure cook 10 lbs pressure for no less than 75 min and no more than 110 min.

IMO really good for:
black beans
garbanzo beans (makes wonderful hummus)--so good you'll drink the juice if you eat them right out of the jar.

any dried beans you like will work though.

Thanks for posting this (and all your recipes)! Canning black beans was my second attempt at canning ever, and they came out pretty well.
