I’ve been canning my SHTF pinto beans. First try, they were still hard. I suppose being 12 years old might’ve had something to do with it. Seriously, I think those beans, packed in a black powder rifle, would bring down a deer! HARD as rocks!

So next try I soaked 24 hours. Then drained, added water and simmered them for awhile. THEN I canned those deer buckshot rams! Turned out perfect. Instant beans, like @Mini Horses said, just pop the lid!

My beans always end up over-cooked. I'm going to age some beans then. What do you think - 5 years?
