I don’t soak beans overnight. If I were the type of person who remembered to soak beans the night before, I would probably also be the type of person who remembered to put dinner in the slow cooker after breakfast. Sometimes it is best to acknowledge your weakness and play to your strengths. And the pressure cooker is the great equalizer!
One pound of dried black beans makes the equivalent of 4 cans of beans. I stock up on organic dried beans when they go on sale because during that time I can by a pound of beans for less than a can of cooked beans.
