Hi I'm new to most of this. I've only recently heard of the term "prepper", but I've always stocked about a year's worth of canned goods just because I thought that it was a good idea.
I'm going to try my hand at dry canning some beans and rice today. Wish me luck!😊

Ugh! That was a catastrophe! I followed instructions for oven dry canning, dry beans. I canned 20 pounds of black beans. Every jar was sterilized in the dishwasher and sat in there overnight to dry. Then I put the empty jars in the oven on 225 for a half hour then let them cool and filled each jar with beans and put into the oven at 225 degrees for an hour and 45 minutes. The lids were sterilized in the oven for 15 minutes. I took each jar out of the oven, one at a time and put the lids and rings on tightly. After almost an hour, the lids started to pop. I got excited about my "success" so I checked on the jars. The ALL had moisture in the jars. Every single one of them. I opened all of the jars and dumped the beans out onto several lined sheet pans to try to dry them so that they don't waste. Can they be saved? I don't want to waste 20 pounds of black beans!
I should have just put them into clean, dry jars with oxygen absorbers.

Had the same problem over the weekend with kidney navy and chickpeas. Took all the lids off then put them all back into the oven for another hour. Resealed them with new lids. Let them pop and put them all into the oven for another 30 minutes as an experiment. Let then cool down in the oven and that seamed to solve the moisture problem. in future I'm going to let the bags of beans sit in their original package for a few weeks to remove extra moisture prior to canning. Regardless I'll use those first just in case.

Godspeed

Thank you for the info. I think that next time, I'll put the beans in the freezer for 3 days, let the come to room temperature for a day then put them in the jars with oxygen absorbers. I hope that will work. I just ordered food grade moisture absorbers to put in with these black beans. I'm going to let them sit for a few days to dry. I wonder if there is any issue with using both an oxygen absorber and a moisture absorber in the jars with these beans???

Hidy and welcome to the boards from southern Oklahoma.

FYI, You'll get more of a response from members if you post your problem in the Food and Water forum on the main page. A lot of the members don't visit the New Member Introduction forum.
