DIY dried beans

Soaked one pound of beans over night and rinsed them well. Put in a pot covering the beans with fresh water and added about a teaspoon of salt. Brought up to a boil then turned down low and cooked for 30 minutes. Once done I put the beans into mason jars and let them cool. One cooled they go right into the freezer. Makes about 8-10 cups of cooked beans which I put in 5 medium mason jars.
Same instructions applies to any dried whole beans. These freeze well as long as you cover beans with the cooking water the bean cooked in.
