Store Well Waste Less Beans

  By dana.bean

■ Store dry beans in an airtight container in a cool, dark, dry place. Label with the date they were purchased and try to use within 1 year for best quality.

■ Store cans of beans in a cool dry place. Look for a “BEST if used by” date on the can to help know how long to store them. • If the can is leaking, bulging on the ends or spurts when opened, throw it away.

■ Refrigerate cooked or opened canned beans in a covered container that is not made of metal. Use within 5 days.

■ Freeze cooked or opened canned beans for longer storage. Use a freezer-quality container. Cover beans with cooking liquid or water, leaving room for expansion. Use within 2 to 3 months for best quality.
