Or, use quick-soak method: in a saucepan, cover beans with water and boil rapidly for 2 minutes; take off stove, cover and let stand for an hour or more; then drain, add fresh water and continue.

For convenience begin preparation before rest of meal.                        Beans to water ratio is 1:4.
