Cooking Tips

  • No soaking is required for this recipe. If you do soak your beans, reduce water by 1 cup and check for doneness at 4-6 hours.
  • Add ACIDIC INGREDIENTS (such as canned tomatoes or lemon juice) after the beans have softened. (These ingredients can sometimes interfere with the rehydration process).
  • SALT can also interfere with rehydration so it is best added after the beans have softened.
  • SMOKED TURKEY adds amazing flavor to this recipe.
  • Add TOMATOES WITH CHILIS for an extra kick if you like spice.
  • Any type of SMOKED SAUSAGE works well. Frying your sausage before adding to the soup adds great flavor.
