Hey, friends! In today’s video, I will show you how and why I can the dried beans that I grow in my garden. I will also give you some ideas for healthy lunch ideas while the canner is doing its thing. Scroll down below the video for more information about what you see here today. 😊
***So I told you I would let you know how many beans I planted to get this amount of harvest… Here is an example of how unpredictable a harvest can be:
RED KIDNEY BEANS (2021):
- Planted: 45
- Yield: 14 pints canned
RED KIDNEY BEANS (2022):
- Planted: 141
- Yield: 9 pints canned
*Even though I planted more beans in 2022, I got less of a harvest compared to 2021. The reason is that the red kidney beans were in a section of my garden that was neglected and quickly became overrun with weeds. Many of the bean plants were choked out, and many of the remaining bean plants got moldy from lack of air flow. Lesson learned!
BLACK BEANS (2022):
- Planted: 180
- Yield: 24 pints canned
GREAT NORTHERN BEANS (2022):
- Planted: 200
- Yield: What you saw in the jar (a little more than a half gallon dried.) I haven’t canned them yet, so I’m not sure how many canned pints that will make.
