                                          How to Cook Dry Beans
                                          Special tip for preparing dry beans:
                                          SOAKING BEANS
                                          OVERNIGHT METHOD: Add 1 3⁄4 qt cold water to every 1 lb of dry beans. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Discard the water. Proceed with recipe.
                                          QUICK-SOAK METHOD: Boil 1 3⁄4 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 recipe.
                                          COOKING BEANS
                                          Once the beans have been soaked, add 1 3⁄4 qt water for every 1 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 135 °F or higher.
                                          OR chill for later use.
                                          Critical Control Point: Cool to 70 °F within 2 hours and to 40 °F or lower within 4 hours.
                                          1 lb dry great northern beans = about 2 1⁄2 cups dry or 6 1⁄4 cups cooked beans.
