Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


I like to brine my beans first, the CI method, before cooking.

I find that it really makes a difference, the beans are so tender and creamy but don't fall apart and burst (leaving skins) like when they did when I just soaked them in plain water or did the fast soak method.

Just fill a big pot with water, add the beans and about 3T salt. Stir and soak overnight or 6 hrs. Drain and cook per your directions.

Hope this helps you!
