Cooking Instructions

1. Pick through dried beans and remove any debris or damaged beans.
2. Depending on the age of dried black beans, they could take 2 hours or longer to cook. Fresher dried beans will contain more moisture and take less time to cook. Presoacking black beans overnight will significantly reduce cooking time.
3. To presoak, place beans in a container with enough space for the beans to expand. Cover with water, with 2 inches of water above the top of the beans. Refrigerate overnight to avoid fermentation. Drain and rinse well.                                             
4. Put the beans in a pot. Cover with water, with 2 inches of water above the top of the beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer (medium-low heat), then simmer for 1-1 ½  hours, or until tender.



The black bean—not to be confused with the fermented black soybean used in East Asian cooking—is also known as the black Spanish bean, Mexican bean, Tampico bean, Venezuelan bean, or the black turtle bean. Concerning gastrointestinal health, the bean appears to be the perfect combination of substances that allow bacteria in the colon to produce butyric acid. The cells of the colon wall use butyric acid as fuel, allowing the lower digestive tract to function properly.
