Directions: For overnight soaking, cover each cup of beans with 3 cups water and let stand overnight or 12 hours. For quicker results, add dry beans to boiling water boiling 2 minutes and let stand for 1 hour, or use a pressure cooker like the Instant Pot (cooking time reduced to under 1 hour).
Cooking: Cover and simmer slowly bean mix in water until beans are tender, about 2 hours. Simmer gently and stir as little as possible. Add 1/8 tsp. baking soda per cup of beans to shorten cooking time in hard water. Do not add tomatoes, lemon juice, wine, or vinegar until beans are almost tender as they delay softening.
Allergens: Packaged in a plant that handles milk, wheat, eggs, soy, and tree nut products.
Ingredients: Beans: pinto, small red, small white, great northern, large lima, baby lima, kidney, black turtle, and pink beans, and yellow split peas, green split peas, lentils, and black eye peas.
