If you are cooking with dry beans, you will have to presoak them before cooking.
There are two ways to presoak dry beans – the quick soak & overnight soak. Rinse beans before you start cooking.
Place the beans in large saucepan with about 7 cups water. Bring to rapid boil on medium high heat, and boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain soak water and rinse beans. If you use Lima beans I prefer to peel them (I would rather spend 10 minutes on that than having white peels floating in my soup or stew).
Place beans in large saucepan with about 7 cups water. Cover and let stand overnight, or at least 6-8 hours. Drain soak water and rinse. Again I would also peel the Lima beans as I don’t like the peels from the beans floating in the soup or stew.
