How to Cook Black Beans
Prior to cooking the beans, soak them in water overnight. Drain them prior to cooking. Transfer the beans to a cooking pot and cover them with about an inch of water. Bring them to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the beans for one hour, at which point you can check to see if they’re done. Cook until tender, yet firm. Add salt to taste. Enjoy the black beans as a side dish or add them to your favorite recipes!

One of the most versatile itemsMichael, Eagle Point, OR
I wasn't a huge fan of black beans in the past because of the dark juice when they cook but these worked quite well when I made posole for the first time. I had them soaking and the hominy corn arrived so I decided to make it for the first time. The beans held their shape nicely while the dish cooked and added a nice level of creaminess. Definitely worth another try in the future.Ann, Sterling, CT
