Dry Bean FAQ.

I've found most of this info is mostly scattered about on the internets, so I compiled a bunch of the usefull data. I figured I would share since this answers a lot of the bean faqs.

To break down the gas causing sugars in beans, you can add a 1/4 tsp of baking soda to the soak water and/or change the water multiple times. While you can cook dried beans without soaking, the results are not as good. The beans will lose more skins and can be mushy on the outside while a bit underdone toward the center. You can soak a bunch of beans, and either freeze the excess after soaking, or cook them, and freeze the excess after cooking. Either way works.

Bean Math
One 15-ounce can of beans = 1 1/2 cups cooked beans, drained.
One pound dry beans = six cups cooked beans, drained.
One pound dry beans = two cups dry beans.
One cup dry beans = three cups cooked beans, drained.
