BASIC ORGANIC DRY BEANS PREPARATION;
SORTING - Dry beans need to be sorted before cooking as you might find a few dried-up, wrinkled beans that need to be removed. Rinse thoroughly with cold water before and after soaking.
SOAKING - Everyone has their own favorite method of soaking dry beans. They are all effective; choose the one that works best for you.
Overnight: Cover the beans with at least 3-inches of water and allow to stand overnight.
Cook/soak: Cover with water as above. Boil the dry beans for about 2 minutes, cover, and
let them soak for 1-hour prior to cooking.
Cook/soak II: Cover with water as above. Boil the dry beans over medium heat for
10 minutes. Cover and soak for 30-minutes before cooking.
COOKING ORGANIC BEANS - It's important to drain and to rinse the soaked beans. This helps get rid of sugars that have leached out during the soaking process. These sugars are the reason why beans and other vegetables high in raffinose can cause gas.
Add two cups of water for every 1/2-cup of presoaked Organic beans. Cook slowly until beans are tender.
COOKING TIMES - If you are using fairly low/slow heat, most Organic beans cook within 1-1/2 to 2 hours, faster with higher heat, but they will hold their shape better if you slow them down. Great Northern Beans cook faster; between 45 and 60 minutes. Organic Black Turtle Beans and other smaller beans also cook faster, 1 to 1-1/2 hours on slow / low heat.
SLOW COOKER ORGANIC BEANS - If you have all day to cook your Organic beans, grab your slow cooker. No soaking needed. Just cover the sorted and washed beans with at least 3-inches of water and cover. Set on low before you leave for work and they will be done when you get home. Only have 1/2-day? Set them on high!
