Have enough jars to fill your canner.
In each jar add one cup of dry beans fill with water and soak over night. ( if fresh beans, omit this step and proceed to the next step of adding water and seasonings )
The next morning pour out the soaking water add fresh water and one teaspoon of salt (garlic powder or onion powder can also be added).
