Pre-Soaking Beans


Using this method means no soaking overnight. There’s a theory that if you do soak overnight; fermentation begins to take place, hence stomach issues can arise.  Since finding this method, I never soak overnight.  Sometimes you just don’t know “what’s for dinner?” the day before!

To Quick “Presoak” the Beans:

Place the beans in a large pot with water to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat a bit. Cover leaving lid ajar a bit and boil for 2 minutes, being careful not to let the pot boil over. Remove from the heat and with the lid on, let stand for 1 hour. Proceed with your recipe.
