Recipe Information
4.      NOTE:  You can cook your own pinto beans and freeze in serving amounts. 
       Leave a little of the juice in the beans.

        I home can my own beans because I live in 6700 altitude and it can take up to 2   days to cook beans-even soaked beans.
  If you are interested in canning your own beans you can contact me at MY  RECIPE EMAIL  and I can send you instructions on how to do so. I have done  this for years with no problem.
