Always better to make your own… in a crockpot is the easiest.
Oh yeah, that makes sense.
LOL…I know even WANT to know! LOL, I use only organic..just a few cents more, taste better and no rinsing! Happy Cooking
It’s not mandatory at all, but most people rinse canned beans to wash off some of the sodium content.
You do not have to rinse them if you do not want to. The liquid they are canned in is typically very high in sodium and thick. Reasons for rinsing would be to reduce the amount of unnecessary sodium you will consume or to keep the liquid from thickening up what ever you are adding them to.
I never even thought about it I guess because of the texture or consistency you want in your food?
I’ve used them lots of times without rinsing them with no problems. On the other hand, sometimes I don’t want the “juice” (not really juicy in black beans) though as it can discolor or change the texture of the “dish” that I’m preparing.
Also you might want to think about cooking your own dried beans to stay away from BPA used in cans.It’s a toxic plastic in case you didn’t know about it.Google could it and get educated about it if you don’t already know.
I don’t have any idea.I’d use Organic just to be safe!!
maybe to get rid of excess sodium
You’re rinsing off the sodium and the starch that is in with the canned beans.
In my experience you get better results in flavor and texture if you rinse them first.
To remove the oil?
