Some of these beans don't completely cookReview by JanI have made two batches of these beans, after soaking them overnight. In both cases, some of the beans never got soft, even when most of them are mushy. I don't know what causes this, but it's annoying. They have a very mild flavor and take on whatever spice you use on them. I like cumin, with onion, tomatoes, parsley, and some garlic.
Easy to Prepare — a little makes a lot
- First, sort beans for any foreign matter and then rinse. Some cooks like to do a preliminary soak by soaking beans in water overnight or for at least 8 hours.
- After optional soaking drain and rinse beans.
- Next, place beans in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, adding water as needed. Simmer time will vary depending on soak time and size of bean.
- Alternatively, some cooks prefer to use crock pot techniques.
- Note: As with any supply of dry natural beans, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your beans first.
Yield — 1 cup weighs about 1/2 pound. 2 cups of dry beans equals about 4-5 cups cooked beans.
