Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • As beans are a natural product, pick over beans, discarding any stones, dirt particles, or discolored beans before soaking or cooking.
  • If you have hard water in your area, adding ⅛ teaspoon baking soda will reduce the cooking time.
  • Make sure water covers beans by at least 2 inches (5 centimeters), check on water level every little while, and don't let the top beans get above the water.
