Dried Beans

When I was growing up, dried beans or as some call them leather britches, was a staple in our home.  Every year, we spent many hours stringing them up on strings and carrying them to the attic to hang on nails.  I can still remember going up to the attic and seeing rows and rows of green beans drying.  I SO wish I had a picture of that to share with you all.  However, I searched the internet and found this one at wildwoodforestlogcabin.com.

Yesterday, though, I thought I would try something different.  We dehydrated them in our dehydrator following the directions in the book.  They were finished in about 10 hrs-not weeks.  However, I do think we might do it the old way sometime, just so the girls can have that experience.  I hope these taste as good as the ones we used to do.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
