How to Cook Dried Beans:

Many types of beans are grown right here in Michigan, but you’ll find them dried in bags instead of ready to go in a can. To cook, soak them for a day or two in water, strain, and then simmer in a pot of fresh water for an hour or so. Timing depends on the type of bean, but taste as you go until you get the feel.

In a rush? You can also soak beans in boiling water for an hour or two to speed things up. Beans can also be frozen for future use.
