Note on cooking beans

with 2 comments

I just cooked a batch of dark red kidney beans, this time on the stovetop. I again soaked them overnight in brine (2 teaspoons salt in water to cover 1 lb beans), then drained that, added plenty of water and decided to go with 1 teaspoon of baking soda instead of the 2 I had been using. Cooked on stovetop uncovered (so I did have to add some water along the way), and they were done in just about an hour from a cold start — and they were much better with just 1 teaspoon of the baking soda: still tender, but holding their shape better. I’ve revised my earlier bean posts to note cutting back a bit on the baking soda.

I encourage you to experiment as well.
