·         Dried beans (kidney, black beans, pinto, navy, etc)
·         Water
·         Quart or pint sized mason jars with lids/rings
·         A pressure canner
1.      Remove any foreign objects from beans
2.      Place in large bowl and cover with water
3.      Optional: Add 2 Tablespoons vinegar, or lemon juice to soaking water
4.      Soak overnight
5.      Drain and rinse beans
6.      Place in large pot
7.      Cover with 2 inches of fresh water
8.      Bring to a boil, stirring frequently and watching to prevent boiling over
9.      Ladle beans into hot jars (no need to sterilize as long as they're clean and hot), leaving 1" headspace
10.  Fill with cooking liquid, again, leaving 1" headspace
11.  Put lids and rings on jars
12.  Place jars in pressure canner and process at 10 pounds* pressure:
13.  Pints for 1 hour, 15 minutes
14.  Quarts for 1 hour, 30 minutes
15.  Remove from canner and let cool, checking all lids for proper seals before storing

(*You will need to adjust your pressure depending on your altitude)

Kiss TY  for this.  I have 5 gallon buckets I store Pintos & Rice in.  Some I've stored in my Food Saver first, some I didn't.  They keep well, either way.

This is a good idea tho.
