Speeding up the Soaking Process for Dried Beans

Dried Beans

If you are anything like me, at times, you will forget the whole “soak the beans overnight” part of a recipe.

In such situations, I find the following helpful.

  1. Wash the beans in a saucepan.
  2. Add water (ratio of 1 part beans, 3 parts water) and put on a burner.
  3. Bring the water to boil rapidly and turn off the burner.
  4. Cover and keep in a dark place for four hours.
  5. By now, the beans should be nicely plump and swollen.
  6. Cook according to your recipe’s instructions.

You are invited to share your tips and tricks on how to speed up the pre-soak process for dried beans.

Hope this helps!
