How To Freeze Cooked Beans
A 15 ounce can of beans is about 1 and 2/3 cup of cooked beans. So to freeze leftover cooked beans, fill separate mason jars with 1 and 2/3 cups beans and cover with water. Make sure to leave about 2 inches of space on top for the liquid to expand. Carefully place jars in the freezer (without the lids) and they’ll keep for up to 6 months!
Next time you know you’ll be using a recipe that calls for a can of beans, thaw your jar and voila! Just as easy as popping open a can.
Ok fine- no where near as easy, but so much better for you since they are truly BPA-free
