For those new to canning you can follow along with these instructions on page 66 of the Ball Blue Book under Dried Beans.
First make sure that your jars are washed and then put in a large pot/ dishpan of boiling water to sterilize.
Then take your dried beans and go through them to make sure there are no rocks or trash of any kind in them. Then wash several times to clean well. Place them in a large pot and fill water to at least 2 inches over beans, put on stove and bring to boil. Boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let them soak for 1 hour.
On a back burner put a small sauce pan of water on low and add your lids to warm. (do not boil)
Place beans in hot sterile jars adding 1/2 teaspoon canning salt to each pint jar.
pour boiling water over beans to 1" from rim.
remove air bubbles
Wipe rims off with coffee filter to remove any food or residue
place hot lids on hot jars
put on rings and tighten
Place hot jars in canner
Canner ready for lid to go on
Your lid will again look like this with your gauge at zero and the small pressure safety valve in front in the down position. Only then will you remove your small round pressure regulator. Unlock and remove lid. Carefully open away from face and allow steam to escape.
Store in cool and dark place until ready to use
