We eat a lot of pinto beans around here so I try to keep several jars canned up of plain beans and beans with bacon.
The plain beans I use in recipes, chili and to make refried beans with. The beans with bacon we just open, heat and eat they are so nice to have on hand after a very busy day that I haven’t had time to get something fixed for dinner. I will show you how to do the plain beans today, then I will do the beans with bacon in a few days. I like this recipe because you do not have to soak the beans.
First start with clean beans. ( Always sort through and rinse your beans even if they say precleaned They will still have dirt in them.)
For pints use ¾ cup beans and process for 50 minutes
