Pole Beans as Beans

Anonymous added on September 13, 2011 | Answered

In years gone by, we used to let pole beans go and get large. Then somewhere along the line the beans were picked, 'shelled' and stored to be boiled later as 'ham and beans'. I don't remember how long the beans were left on the vine. Can they be picked and hung up to dry or are they left on the vine to dry?

I picked shelled and layed them in a scattered fashion on a part of a bench in my greenhouse,I covered them with a sack.Weeks later when all shriveled and dry They were gathered up ,put in a large jar and placed in the cupboard for eating.I have a small garden and need the space all the time so they could not be left on the vine.Hope this helps
