Let stand overnight or at least 6 to 8 hours. Drain soak water and rinse beans. Cooking: Add 6 cups of hot water to drained and rinsed beans. Simmer gently with lid tilted until desired tenderness is reached, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. For areas of the country with hard water, please add 1/8 teaspoon baking soda per pound of beans or use bottled water for cooking as hard water may lengthen the cooking time. Beans are a natural agricultural product. Despite use of modern cleaning equipment, it is not always possible to remove all foreign material. Sort and rinse beans before cooking.
