Can You Help This Reader?
I recently was able to stock up big time on several types of dried beans and peas at very good prices, but think I went a bit overboard. I hate to think I could lose my savings if they were to go bad before we could use them. I've heard that dried beans can last a very long time but do they need to be stored a certain way or can I just leave them in the packaging they came in? And what about dried peas? Will they last as long as beans? I am guessing it could take us close to a year to eat all of these dried beans and peas, if not longer!
