About This Class

c8d2d7b4

In this class, I am going to show you step by step how to prepare dried beans in order to cook or can them. 

Most store bought canned beans are loaded with preservatives, high in sodium and expensive yet so many recipes use them. Making beans at home is a healthy way to save money and improve your diet. Beans canned at home contain no added sodium, preservatives or other unhealthy chemicals.

Good basic overview of canning beans, something I've wanted to try with my pressure canner for awhile now.
This brought back memories of my mother canning. It was great hearing and watching Margaret Smith go through all the steps of canning beans. Would definitely recommend this short and well-done video.
Canning beans, I have never thought to do that!

Bringing old fashion traditions to modern living

Hi! My name is Margaret and I have a passion for many of the "lost arts" but use modern tools when the finished product won't be compromised.  At Days Well Spent we know Time is a luxury these days. We can provide you with the things you need to reclaim a little bit of that elusive luxury while still treating yourself and your family to well-deserved comforts and convenience.

We envision the world in simpler times when happy homes were a humble paradise and everything you needed was within the comfort of your own four walls; food, shelter, warm clothing, and the company of family. We try to focus on the true necessities of life while trimming down extraneous noise and the hectic, fast-paced chaos of modern life. Everything we do is about getting to the heart of home.

I look forward to meeting you!
