Recipe

Have I got a cooking trick for you today? It’s almost as good as learning how to seed a pomegranate without staining every surface in my kitchen and all the clothing I am wearing. Today we are going to talk about how to cook beans in just 75 minutes. That’s right from dried bean to delicious in 75 minutes. No soaking or long cooking times required.

There is really no comparison between canned beans and home cooked beans in my opinion, but all too often there just isn’t enough time to make your own beans. They normally require overnight soaking and anywhere from six to ten hours of cooking. It’s a lot of time and without proper planning it just doesn’t happen very often, until now. This trick lets you make delicious home cooked beans in just about 75 minutes and you’ll swear they cooked for hours. You can season them anyway you like. This is a pretty classic seasoning combination but feel free to mix it up.
