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.
