How To Make How to Cook Dried Beans
An uncomplicated, step-by-step guide to cooking the perfect dried beans: it’s a simple task of sorting, soaking, cooking, salting, and storing!
Pull out and discard any small stones or wrinkled or broken beans.
Place the beans in a bowl. Cover with 2 to 3 inches of water. Cover and leave on the countertop until you are ready to cook them the following day. Drain the water. Rinse the beans.
In a large pot set over medium-high heat, add the beans and cover them with water until it reaches about 3 inches above the beans.
Bring the beans up to a boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Leave the pot uncovered and cook.
After about 40 minutes, check a bean to taste it. Continue cooking until the beans are creamy but intact for about another 20 to 50 minutes.
Serve when ready.
