I store my dry beans in glass jars ! I want to keep any bugs out ! And keep them fresh as possible,besides they look so pretty in the jars on the counter and in the cupboard !
Always make sure you sort and rinse your dry beans very well to get all the dirt and little stones out of the beans...nobody wants to bite into a stone no matter how small !
You can presoak/precook your beans or just cook them and then freeze for future use. I like to have some frozen beans on hand for those days that I really want beans but don't have the time to do all the prep.
You can choose to soak your dry beans overnigh...
