    Great thread and lots of recipies, thanks for all the info Two Sheds. Had thought of saving beans to eat before but was not sure about it. Had asked a few people but not heard the replies I wanted to hear. Will definately be saving plenty of beans this year and trying out some of your recipes.

    Looks I'm going to be kept very busy cooking up the recipes on here - many can be very easily adapted for low carb too.

    Longing to try the Black Bean Soup now!

    Thanks TS!!!

    Love this thread. Can I just clarify, please? Do I take it that French Beans/Runner beans/pole beans (Trail of tears type) etc (as in the seeds not the pods) all need boiling for 10 minutes before adding to the recipe even if they are quite fresh when frozen?

    Bean harvest has been brilliant this year so it's going to be a beany winter . Grew my usual ones but also tried the huge runner beans from Real Seeds which form massive white beans which have really impressed me. Not eaten many as shelley beans (too many other things to eat in the summer) but they are brilliant dried. Has a fab sausage and bean casserole the other night which made a few sausages enough to feed an army

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    The problem isn't with freshness, or even with dryness. The problem with beans is the toxic lectin they all contain (some have more than others, and there's more in the seed than the pod). Some people will suffer bean poisoning and others have a greater tolerance to it.

    To be on the safe side, do the 10 min boil to kill the lectin
