When storing cooked beans in the freezer, do you store any of the liquid? Also how long do you store beans for, and in what types of containers?

Last time I stored beans from a can (shameful, I know) in a tupperware for a week in the fridge, and they died, tasted awful. I imagine beans you bake yourself would last longer, but I tend to cook a few servings at a time as I need them, so they don't spend much time in a fridge.<br><br>
I smell an experiment coming on...

I cook large batches of beans pretty frequently. If you cook up a one pound bag of beans, after they are cooled, just divide them evenly between 4 freezer bags. No liquid is needed at all. It comes out to be about 1 1/2 -1 3/4 cups of cooked beans per bag and equals a 15 oz can you'd buy in the store<br><br>
they'll last for months, but mine don't stick around that long.

I use freezer bags and I do not freeze them in the liquid. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> HTH! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
