Nutritional Information

Ingredients:  Natural Small white beans.

Directions: For overnight soaking, cover each cup of beans with 3 cups water and let stand overnight or 12 hours.  For quicker results, add dry beans to boiling water boiling 2 minutes and let stand for 1 hour.  In cooking, use same water.  Cover and simmer slowly in water until beans are tender, about 2 hours.  Add more water if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, onion, or garlic. Cooking tips: to keep skin from bursting, simmer gently and stir as little as possible. Add 1/8 tsp. baking soda per cup of beans to shorten cooking time in hard water.  Do not add tomatoes, lemon juice, wine, or vinegar until beans are almost tender as they delay softening.
