Beans are not only easy to store, their earthy beauty makes them an attractive decorating option when stored in clear glass containers. To help them retain their beauty as well as their taste, follow some simple storage steps.
Dry beans should be stored at room temperature in covered containers. They’ll keep almost indefinitely. Don’t store dry beans in the refrigerator.
Cooked beans may be kept, covered and refrigerated for 4 or 5 days. If packaged in moisture and vapor-proof containers, cooked beans will keep in the freezer for up to 6 months.
Always store canned beans in a cool, dry place.
