    Default Dried beans

    Hi there - we use a lot of dried beans (borlotti, cannellini, butter, kidney etc) and would love to do some ourselves. We are about to plant our new veg plot - can anyone recommend varieties for this please and how to dry them?

    I got fed up with throwin old runner beans into the compost bean so now we shell them and drop them in to the freezer, we also freeze our borlotti beans as well saves having to soak them over night!!!!!

    further to that discussion, I am now growing pinto beans, I've got about 20 plants at home and the lottie, so I can comeback later in the year and report back - hopefully you will as well.
