my 2 cents cooking beans in an electric pressure cooker is more 'cooking' than opening a can from the store....

now with that said....I dont care what you hardly call anything...you do nothing but troll this entire forum to start stuff....

encouraging others to do and learn the basics like cooking beans at home and encourage them to make homemade flour tortillas is a first step.....everyone is not such an expert like you think you are...show us a picture sometime of all this doing you say you do and know...pffffttttt

If you have a few hundred pounds, turn them into pork. Let the pigs do the chewing.
I cycled out some 9 year old black beans with a couple of feeder pigs. Gave them the stored COB for the chickens, wheat, rice and everything else in the cellar.
Pricey for hog chow but LTS stuff needs to be rotated.

Poured boiling water over everything in a small cooler the night before I fed.

Ps. I tested the black beans, they were fine in mylar.
Pigs tasted good too.
No longer doing big buckets, #10 cans are easier to deal with.

We really do appreciate the sentiment. If everyone was as thoughtful and respectful as you then you wouldn't see that kind of talk.

But this place abounds with trolls and the aggressively ignorant. This isn't a refined society ladies meeting room either.

Type A abounds and when you add that to trolls and the forcefully ignorant around here you have to slap it down or you end up encouraging them.

Better to arrive in your nice clothes with rubber boots on. Wade through the sleaze and when you meet folks with good answers just be presentable to them. I and many others are quite capable of stopping our troll bashing for a moment to deliver you a polite and useful answer. We compartmentalize quite well here.

All the cooking suggestions you offer are better tasting with black beans.

Instapots are nice but they are just a gizmo that quits working when the power goes out.

Pressing a couple buttons is hardly what I would call cooking that requires a learning curve.
Well said.

So I soaked a bag dated 2007 for 4 days and cooked them in a slow cooker for 10 hours. They softened quite a bit, but a fairly large portion retained the texture one finds in JIF crunchy peanut butter. Definitely edible but not an all time favorite. Now, only water was used for the soak and cooking. Will try baking soda next time but have my doubts.

Any ideas on how to repurpose these? And since I like canned beans better than any fresher beans I've ever made, well that's another story.

Don't care if you aren't nice with your comments especially if humor is incorporated.


I've used pinto beans 40 years old. Father-in-law raised them so we go all we could use and more. Just used my SS 4-quart pressure cooker. You can't sprout the old ones but you can make good chili.

Default Y2K Bean Rotation

Good morning.
We are currently cycling through our Y2K Bean storage. Each bucket gets replaced as it is emptied. These are primarily Pinto and Black Beans. These were stored in Mylar with an O2 pack (2000cc).
No issues so far and we have been doing a 24 hour soak with at least 2 water changes.
Our replacement packages are being replaced with one and two gallon mylar sealed bags for ease of use.
We have been using a "Pinto Bean Seasoning" that the entire family enjoys. It is Badia brand. We also serve "Mild Southern ChowChow" on the side. Never any left overs here.

If you are using hard tap water, that could be preventing them from softening. As a test, use distilled water and your baking soda.

Pigs can certainly eat them and for those of us for whom horses will be a central theme after the "Event", so can the equine members of the family.

If they are still alive, good idea, turn one bad bean into ten good ones.

Spent the weekend at the cabin. I put some 9 bean soup mix in the slow cooker. It was a few years old, maybe quite a few years old. Anyway put them in at 2:00 pm. Next day 10:00am all were cooked except the pintos, which were still crunchy. We switched to a white Peruvian bean from Costco. Costs a little more but we buy it in 20-25# bags. It has replaced our current use of pintos.

I didn't loose my beans I put the pintos in canning jars with 1/3 cup beans and rest boiled water and pressure canned. Takes up a lot more room but still good.

1/3 of a cup of dry beans per quart of water?

My beans were that old and not even in mylar. They cooked up fine using the method I described above. soaked for a day with a couple changes of water, then into the pressure cooker with some ribs and a little sugar. Mom would always soak navy beans for a day and change the water, so I simply do the same thing.

The pressure cooker certainly didn't plug or explode. Some foaming action, but not enough to endanger anything. The beans were very good. Put some blackstrap molasses on them and really good.

All the flaming aside, when you're forced into dipping into your food stores, those semi-al dente' beans will be pretty tasty... don't kid yourself.

Why suffer through with semi hard beans, much easier to cook , dehydrate store in mylar with 02O , then they cook up fast with just hot water in thermos if need be. We can them as well.

Is it really suffering though? If it bothers you that much, give them to a poor family. They won't whine and complain because their bean has a little crunch to it. Or, just keep them in storage and eat them as a last resort. They are still good...
