Directions for use:
- Pre-soaking beans 6-8 hours to overnight will significantly reduce cooking time. Cover with 2 inches of water and allow for the beans to expand in the bowl. Prevent fermentation in hot weather by putting the beans in the refrigerator while they soak.
- After soaking, place beans in a colander and rinse under cold water.
- For each cup of soaked beans add three cups of water, and bring to a boil.
- Reduce flame to medium low for 10 minutes, skim off and discard any foam.
- Cover and lower heat and simmer on low for approx. 1 ¬Ω to 2 hours.
- Hold off adding seasoning to beans until tender. Adding at the beginning will hinder the beans from cooking properly.
