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.
