That's why making 2x the amount you need (or more) works great--like PF, I freeze beans. I always have frozen beans on hand.

Sorry it doesn't work like you except. It works like a charm for me!
Beans were reasonably fresh. Both times they were brought to a boil on the stove before going into the oven. Both times they were still crunchy in the middle.
