How to store pinto beans?

Place beans in an airtight container.

If you want to store dried beans for longer than a month, put them in an airtight storage container, such as a mylar bag or a glass jar. Keep the beans in a cool, dark, dry place. They should last three years in the container.

Storing Ham Hocks

Fresh ham hocks need to be kept cold and used within a week or else stored in the freezer until ready to cook. Ham hocks maintain flavor well and freezing doesn’t affect it too much. Once cooked, the ham hock will remain usable in the refrigerator for about a week or longer in the freezer.

How to store pinto beans?

To reheat baked beans on the stove, pour the beans into a pot and heat them on low heat. If the beans are dry, add stock, milk, or water a tablespoon at a time until you reach the right consistency. Continue heating the beans, stirring frequently until they’re piping hot

The beans will have the best texture and cook in a single day if you soak them first, so don’t skip that step. Otherwise, you’ll be slow cooking from dawn until dusk.
If you end up with an extra ham hock, they are great for freezing. Wrap tightly and store for up to six months.
