1Soak beans in plenty of water overnight. The next day, rinse them well and drain them.

2Place rinsed and drained beans in a large pot and cover with plenty of water. Set the heat to high and bring water to a boil.

3Once the water begins to bubble, stir the beans once and lower heat to low. Cover the saucepan with a lid and set the timer for 60 minutes. When the time is up, taste the beans - if they are soft and not crunchy, they are ready. Older black beans may take up to 90 minutes to cook.
