I spent a chunk of Saturday pressure canning dried beans.
I had six bags, each containing a pound of beans. I did three bags of pinto, two of black, and one navy. It was quite colorful.

After soaking them overnight I boiled the beans for 30 minutes. That gave me time to get my canner and supplies ready.
No photos of the filling process as I was wicked busy filling jars, getting them sealed, and loading the canner.

The beans were processed for 75 minutes. I needed to stay in the kitchen to keep a close eye on the pressure gauge so I had time to make pizza dough and banana bread too. Time management for the win!
