Dried beans for baking.What to use.

I have been using rice for this but want to try dried beans.
Are they just the beans you buy in packets from the shop and
use instead of cooking or what!thanks.

get them from Stevens.they are ceramic beans

The ceramic ones come ina smallish quantity.I find there is not enough in one pack to do a flan base.

Dried beans from the supermarket work just fine and are easier to manage than rice.

thanks for that,I have just been to Pak n Save and could only see
stuff for soup mixes,and tinned beans.
Where abouts would the dried beans be in the shop.
Unless P N S doesn't have any.
Thanks.
