    QUESTION: I stored some dry beans in various containers and they were subject to extreme temperature fluctuations in a remote storage location. They were not subject to moisture. Upon recovering the food, the beans do have a slight odor to them, although not objectionable; may be slightly toxic. If so, could those beans be sprouted/germinated for planting?

    canning cheese is HIGHLY disagreed to and discouraged by the canning experts >>>> NOOOOO way to do it safely ....

    here's a recent article on cheese <<< and specifically mentions the safety regards >>>>

    "Whatever you do, do not “can” cheese. It’s a method touted by some preppers as being safe and having been practiced by them or their grandmothers for years. It involved simply melting cheese in canning jars and then applying a lid and band. “They” state that the vacuum seal that forms is sufficient to be safe and prevent food poisoning. It’s not safe and not true."

    good luck - doesn't sound good - definitely not the storage conditions you want for seeds ....

    I'd soak them first and soften up that shell - might want to try this hydrogen peroxide trick >>>> https://www.whenshtf.com/threads/589...ighlight=seeds

    If you can get them to germinate, great. If they smell, don't eat. I know pigs can pretty much eat anything, but I don't know what happens to the meat, if you feed them (possibly) tainted beans.

    Short answer: "When in doubt, throw it out"

    A note on storage. If you use Oxygen absorbing bags, or CO2, you will kill the bean and they won't germinate. So, store your seed stock separately.
