How to boil beans
1. Rinse beans and pick through and discard any foreign object.( I did not have to do this because I used the package beans,). Add beans to a large pot covering with 3-4 inches of cold water.
2. Cover and let sit overnight or 6 to 8 hours.
3. Drain the soaked beans, rinse, and place the beans in a Dutch oven or pressure cooker. Follow instructions for cooking beans in your pressure cooker. It takes roughly between 8 to 12 minutes to cook. If not using a pressure cook, cook the beans for about 30 minutes or more until tender - black beans take longer to cook.
4. Drain the cooked beans and set aside
