                                          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.
