Did you know that you can replace butter and oil in recipe with beans? Yes you can and since beans when properly stored will be good for years, it is good to know how to use them as replacements for the fats in recipes. There just may come day when you want to bake some brownies or a cake and you have no butter or oil and possibly none is available.
Knowing how to replace them with your stored beans would allow you to still do some baking as long as you had stored flour. Bean store well and keep for many years. When they get older they will take longer to cook but if you store some baking soda with them and a spoon of it to the water when you are cooking the older beans it will help soften them so the water can get in to cook the beans, Bean store well sealed in mason jars or in Mylar bags with an oxygen absorber and then stored in totes or 5 gallon buckets.
Everyday Food Storage tells you how to use them as a replacement for fats when baking. So even if the day never comes when you can find butter or oil but maybe some lazy evening does and you really want brownies but don’t have the oil to make them. Instead of running out to the store to get oil right then, open up a can of beans and go ahead and make your brownies. Save yourself a trip to the store and eat healthier brownies.
