    Very good and well worth reading if you have the time. When you go into the Mother Earth News website , you should allow at least 1/2 hour. Example there is a side bar in the bean article pointing to an article on hard cider, that led to an article on vinegar and so on. I was lost for a very pleasant 1/2 hour. Thank you for the heads up.

    Here are some we have dried this year. Black, Red, Asparagus, purple hull, lima, big mama lima, rattlesnake. My husband dries them 2-3 weeks on paper plate. The time depends on the size. He really enjoys this. I think it is too tedious, but, he is very patient.

    At the end of the season, we vacuum seal them and put in buckets.
