One of the best things that I have been doing in the last year is freezing cooked (dried) beans.
Earlier I used to cook extra portions that I would refrigerate for later use. Sadly, such beans were good for max 2 weeks after which they would spoil. I was not into buying canned beans and since pressure cooker was a handy appliance in my kitchen, I did not think much about it. But enter Instant Pot and I found making beans ( and a big batch) much easier. Then came the question of storage and suddenly the "AAHA
" moment of freezing them. Its been many months, but I still wonder why I never thought of doing it this long. Oh well. If you ask me, I think Kidney Beans ( especially the ones you find in Indian groceries - large, dark red ones and/or older beans ) are the toughest beans to cook. When Instant Pot Kidney Beans
proved to be a breeze, I knew the other beans were only going to be a child's play! And it was.
