Cooking Dry Beans

These instructions have produced excellent Pinto beans from scratch.  They taste a lot better than the canned stuff, more affordable too.

beans double in size

  1. rinse beans
  2. cover with water in pan 3″ over top of beans
  3. bring to boil
  4. reduce, simmer for 10-15mins
  5. let sit for 1 hour with lid on
  6. pour out water
  7. cover beans with fresh water 1″ over top of beans
  8. simmer beans for 4 hours, ensure they have enough water always
  9. done

I’m going to try this on black eyed peas now, hopefully it translates well.
