Dried beans, peas and such can be kept in plastic containers. Use smaller ones like plastic coffee cans and rotate them or use the buckets. They last time just take longer to cook when they get old. If new to home canning get a Ball canning book!! It shows you how to can and has great recipes!! Also, learn how to do the hot water bath method first! Then learn the pressure cooker method. I am 65 and still learning! So always ask if you want to learn!!
I dry can mine, but lots of people put them up in buckets with mylar bags and absorbers

I’d like to do the dry can I’m afraid no space for so many cans also I’ve never canned in my life I’m so eager to do water canning but I heard glass stove isn’t the.b Est just today I bought canning essentials kits perhaps I’ll get the electric canner really want to start canning .
You can do canning on glass stove. Don't use an electric canner. Get Ball Blue Book for canning. Not everything can be water bath canned.
Honestly, I don't worry about it as I'm pretty sure I'll be using them in the next few years. The beans I have are still in the paper bags and stuffed in a homer bucket. I've cooked with them and they're fine. Same with the white rice. I've got EZ-4 bread mix that's been vac packed in mylar, with o2 bags as has been the wheat, but that was only to kill any weevil eggs that may have been in it. I'm no expert but I think most grains need little processing to last, just my experience talking here.
