You are lucky, Terry, that you don't have the problem with beans and gas! My
family and I have been veggies for 13 years and we still have problems with
I usually cook my own beans and put them in the freezer. I use the quick
soak method (cover your cleaned beans with cold water and bring to a boil,
boil 3 minutes, cover and turn off heat and let sit 1 hour. Drain and rinse
with cold water. Cover beans with fresh cold water, bring to a boil and cook
for the time appropriate for your beans. Drain and rinse, and they are ready
to use) I usually fill the pot with ice cubes and cold water to chill the
beans quickly then drain and fill freezer bags with 2 cups (equivalent to 15
oz tin) of beans. I push the air out of the bags and freeze the bags flat
and store them filed upright in my freezer basket. A quick 'ccrrack' against
the sink loosens a little (or the whole lot!) for recipes.
Whenever I use canned beans-oh boy, do we have gas! :) More than you
probably wanted to know ;P
Bye for now
