Here is how to cook beans quickly. It is called the freezer method. Soak Beans in water over night. In the morning drain, pat dry and spread thinly on a baking sheet. Freeze. Put the frozen beans in a zip lock freezer bag. Take out what you need as you need it. Throw 'em in plain boiling water. Wait 20 to 30 minutes, and done. It might take longer with soybeans or garbonzos, say 45 min. While they cook you can chop up veggies.

Try it, if you like the results (or don't) post your response in this thread. Also if you have some good bean recipes, post them here. Thanks!

In crock pot, 1 jar salsa or fresh if you prefer, 2 cups soaked black beans, cook on low 8 hours.

Easy peasy tasty.

Thanks for the tip. I had been looking for a way to make beans a little more user friendly.
