                                          Special tip for preparing dry beans:
                                          SOAKING BEANS
                                          OVERNIGHT METHOD: Add 1¾ qt cold water to every 1 lb of dry beans. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Discard the water. Proceed with cooking beans.
                                          QUICK-SOAK METHOD: Boil 1¾ qt of water for each 1 lb of dry beans. Add beans and boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to soak for 1 hour. Discard the water. Proceed with cooking beans.
                                          COOKING BEANS
                                          Once the beans have been soaked, add 1¾ qt water for every lb of dry beans. Boil gently with lid tilted until tender, about 2 hours. Use hot beans immediately. Critical Control Point: Hold for hot service at 140 °F or higher.
                                          OR
                                          Chill for later use.
