Place rinsed beans in a pot with 3 quarts waterBring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and continue to boiling for 60 - 70 minutes
After 60 Minutes, add ingredients. Simmer for 30-45 minutes
ok that is what the bag said, this is what I did
I rinsed the beans and placed them in a pot with 2 quarts water and 1 quart chicken stock, bay leaf and boiled for an hour. I then added a smoked turkey wing, pepper and soup seasoning, turned to heat down to simmer for a half an hour. I then turned off the heat for an hour while I went to the school to pick up my daughter. When I got home I turned the soup on to simmer again. sauteed some carrots, celery, and leeks and then added them to the soup and let it cook while the corn bread baked, about 20 minutes.
I find that cooking beans always takes longer then the 2 hours that it says on the bag, I have found that it takes a good 3 hours and at the end of the 3 hours the beans still hold their shape but are tender.
