Bean question?

So I'm thinking its time I tried a pot of beans on the egg and it appears most use canned beans over dried beans any reasons why other than convenience??
For some reason dried seem healthier to me maybe less processed,less salt????

Considering Keri's beans (i think) they have apple filling in them and I love apples so why not start there right!!!

    Canned is always for convenience. Dry beans are better in every other way.

    Jamie, I always use Bush's beans for the Keri's Beans recipe for one reason...convenience since the only time I make that recipe I am taking them to a pot luck BY request! I'm not sure most people can tell the difference between fresh and canned in that recipe for sure! Are you open to another suggestion with Keri's Bean recipe? Substitute cherry pie filling for apple pie filling and the raves you will get will triple! TRUST ME!

    Agree with Eggcelsior, except that I don't use canned because of "convenience", but because I forgot to start dried ones soaking the night before.  I do that a lot.   :(
     
    I got a pressure cooker a few months back, have been experimenting with using it on dry beans but they still (so far) haven't matched those soaked from the night before.

    Being from South Texas, I will say make your beans from the dried, It is an art just like a good brisket.  Follow the directions on the bag and you can cook them quicker.  Also add more water than you think.

    If I remember to soak them then I would. They're cheaper for sure. Canned beans always get drained and rinsed in a colendar when I do baked beans.
