    I've tried to find and buy dehydrated refried beans without any success. I guess that's what those preboiled and dehydrated beans are called. US hikers seem to eat a lot of those. Where can I buy them in Europe or Sweden?

    I did some from home boiled mung beans. But my dehydrated beans became moldy after just a month. To skip the hassle, I would prefer buying them trail-ready. It's odd that it's so difficult to get hold of them in Europe.

    Its not beans but close enough. The 250gr come out at 100gr fully dryed (straight out of the pack) and keep very well. I do batches and pack them in 50gr portions and they are fine 6 month on. Rehydrate for about 2 hours and then just bring to the boil (or longer if shorter rehydration). Another option is home cooked Urid beans (they take many hours slow cooking after 12 hours soaking but are great when dryed with similar results like the lentils).

    I've not tried to eat either one cold but worth a try. Can't see a reason one shouldn't. Probably soak a bit longer...
