Estimating cooked bean volume from dry?
I have a number of recipes that call for canned beans. I prefer to cook my own then add them, often before they are fully done so they can finish with the rest of the recipe. I almost always overestimate and end up with a lot of extra partially cooked beans.
For example, I may have a recipe that calls for a can of black beans. That’s about a cup. What volume should I measure out dry?
Do they cook up 2 times volume? 3 times?
Does it vary by bean type? The only beans I use (that are available in cans) Black beans, kidney, chickpeas, great northern or cannellini. Thanks!
