Where I live, grocery stores often have special savings on many varieties of beans. I love these sales because I have a Food Saver (like a Seal a Meal) that vacuum packs just about anything. Vacuum packing the beans in serving sizes for my husband and I is a perfect way to store beans without dry pack canning in cans too big to leave open. Try mixing lots of different beans together. Include split peas or barley. If you are serving 2-3 people, you will need about two cups of dried beans per meal.
