Dried/ Cooked/ Canned Beans


I ran across some useful information from this website, based on information from the U.S. Dry Bean Counsel, about bean measurements when trying to figure out how many dried beans= cooked beans= canned beans. This is helpful to have on hand:

Two cups of dried beans = one pound
A heaping half-cup of dried beans = one 15-ounce can
One and a half-cups cooked beans, drained = one 15 ounce can
One cup dried beans = 3 cups cooked beans
One pound dried beans = 6 cups cooked beans
