Recanning Foods?

I'm searching for information on recanning foods from #10 cans. I purchased several #10 cans of garbanzo beans that I'd like to recan into pints. I wasn't sure if I needed to reuse the thick liquid already in the cans, or if I could can the beans in water and discard the liquid. Any info will be appreciated.

I agree-I would not recan something that is already processed, but I would freeze. Just put your beans into freezer zip bags and label them. You can even freeze them flat to take up less room.

When you freeze garbanzo beans I believe you will find they turn mushy so decide how you wish to use them first. Open 1 can at a time and freeze the left overs. Your extension service will be able to tell you the most about canning and recanning. If you do decide to freeze them I would drain the juice off and just freeze the beans in separate bags....leave them frozen until use and put in recipe frozen to make better use of them.

Myself I prefer to dehydrate and then I don't have to worry and then I store them in the freezer. Don't take up much room that way either. Hope this helps.

I really would not recommend attempting to reprocess store bought foods. Good luck.

Please don't recan! As Ginnywest suggested, just freeze!

When unsure about canning something you might try a site like Ball or BallBlueBook.com. They are great at answering questions.
