Can you believe it is already April? I love spring!
I have been experimenting with canning beans this week in preparation for canning season. I wanted to try out the Tattler Reusable Canning lids that I had. I am planning on doing a review of these soon so stay tuned. I definitely will be stocking up on them before summer. I have never canned pinto beans before. They were really easy to can and so you will see some bean recipes this week because I am going to use them to see how they taste. I bought 10 lbs. of pinto beans at Sam's Club for $6.26 in case you were interested, but I only canned about 5 lbs. which turned out to be about 12 quarts of beans. I used the recipe in Ball's Blue Book of Canning.
