I used dried beans. I did the rapid soak method (rinse, cover with 6 cups water, bring to a boil, cover for an hour).<br><br>
Well I browned my ground turkey and dumped the beans in. Water and all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Normally I drain the beans, add 6 cups fresh water and Pressure cook for 7-10 minutes.<br><br>
Then add it to my turkey, tomatoes, spices, chilies etc.<br><br>
Will the beans get done?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

The beans will get done. However, you now risk a massive gas attack . . . <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
(changing out the water removes the gas-causing elements)

I would just try to cook it and eat it. I am cheap and ground turkey is not cheap<br><br>

Yeah, I used to do the quick soak... but once I didn't ahve time and skipped it and couldn't tell a lick of difference. Skipped it ever since <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
