   Quantity: An average of 5 pounds of beans is needed
   per canner load of 7 quarts; an average of 3-1/4
   pounds is needed per canner load of 9 pints--an
   average of 3/4 pounds per quart.
   
   Quality: Select mature, dry seeds. Sort out and
   discard discolored seeds.
   
   Procedure: Sort and wash dry beans. Add 3 cups of
   water for each cup of dried beans or peas. Boil 2
   minutes, remove from heat and soak 1 hour and drain.
   Heat to boiling in fresh water, and save liquid for
   making sauce. Make your choice of the following sauces:
   
   Tomato Sauce--Either mix 1 quart tomato juice, 3
   tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon
   chopped onion, and 1/4 teaspoon each of ground cloves,
   allspice, mace, and cayenne pepper; or mix 1 cup
   tomato ketchup with 3 cups of cooking liquid from
   beans. Heat to boiling. Add 3 quarts cooking liquid
   from beans and bring back to boiling.
   
   Molasses Sauce--Mix 4 cups water or cooking liquid
   from beans, 3 tablespoons dark molasses, 1 tablespoon
   vinegar, 2 teaspoons salt, and 3/4 teaspoon powdered
   dry mustard. Heat to boiling.
   
   Fill jars three-fourths full with hot beans. Add a
   3/4-inch cube of pork, ham, or bacon to each jar, if
   desired. Fill jars with heated sauce, leaving 1-inch
   headspace.
