Our organic pinto beans are triple-cleaned and perfect for baking & cooking purposes.
Convenient & safe storage
Our Pinto Beans come in six-gallon buckets (or pails... another word for the same container) containing 40 lbs. net weight. When you store Pinto Beans at home, they need to be protected in a couple of ways. First, they need to be protected from a variety of little critters who'd like to get to them before you do. Weevils and rodents, for example. You also need to protect your Pinto Beans from picking up excessive additional moisture, which can be drawn from the atmosphere. The buckets our Pinto Beans come in provide full protection against these storage risks. They have airtight gasket-sealed lids and oxygen absorber packets that remove the oxygen from the air in the bucket after we put the lid on. The O2 absorbers leave an atmosphere of nitrogen in the bucket, because air consists almost entirely of oxygen and nitrogen. (The oxygen absorber packets themselves are completely food-safe, being made of powdered iron and salt, which are kept separate from the product itself.)
All of our Pinto Beans are triple-cleaned to ensure purity and protect your grain mill from any foreign objects. (Pinto Beans that aren't sufficiently cleaned may contain small stones that will damage or destroy a grain mill... not to mention that you don't want such things in your food!)
Our organic pinto beans have a shelf life of 10+ years when unopened and stored in a cool, dark, dry environment.
“Fresh beans! When our order arrived we were thrilled to find that they cook easier than what we are used to! They smelled fresher than other beans, so we cooked them right away! Wonderful! We will order these again! And when cooked, the beans are delicious!”

Don't be afraid of the plastic construction of this handy lid removal tool. We've used them for years here at PHG. They work great and we've never had one break.
Overall length of the tool is 8.25".
Note: Some bucket lids have several points around their lower lip that must be snipped with a cutting tool prior to removal. No matter what sort of tool you use to pry the lid off, if you're working with that sort of lid then it is indeed necessary to snip the lid at those points, first. Such "snip points" vary in appearance...
