  • I like to soak mine overnight. Then just put them in the slow cooker with enough water to cover. You can add an onion, some bacon or some pieces of ham, or whatever else you like in beans. It's a good idea to wait until they are almost done before adding salt as it will sometimes cause the beans to be hard if added too soon.

  • Check out, she has a tutorial (or 2 or 3) about beans and various ways to cook them, and tons of recipes that use them!
