Are dried beans made in a pressure cooker as good as canned?

Throckmorton | Nov 22, 2008 10:15 AM

I grew up on canned beans. I go through quite a few when I make my homemade chili. I just purchased a pressure cooker (8 quart) and have been reading up on how to use it. I was wondering if pressure cooked beans are as good (tender) as canned? I've made dried beans before by soaking then cooking a couple hours in a pot... they never seem to be as tender as the canned. Any thoughts or words of advice?
