    The Soaking Process

    Before soaking, rinse the dried beans thoroughly and drain in a colander. Pick out any imperfect beans and any rocks or pebbles that may be present. Soak the beans in three times their volume of cold water. The tendency to oversoak beans can be strong, but 6 hours is all that is needed.

    When you’re short of time, try the quick-soaking method:

    Place the beans in a pot and cover with cold water.
    Slowly bring the water to a boil.
    Remove the pot from the heat and let the beans soak in the water for 1 to 2 hours.
    Slow-Cooked Beans

    Pour 4 cups of water into the slow cooker if you are cooking 1 cup of soaked beans. Use 6 cups of water for 2 cups of beans.
    Turn the slow cooker on high and add the beans. Cover the slow cooker. Cook the beans according to the following time guidelines:
    • Lentils: 1½ to 2 hours

    • Split peas: 2½ hours

    • Great northern and navy beans: 2½ to 3 hours

    • Black, cannellini, kidney, and pinto beans: 3 hours

    • Black-eyed peas: 3½ hours

    • Chickpeas: 4 hours

    An hour before the beans are to finish cooking, check the water level. If the beans are not completely submerged, add enough boiling water to cover them.
    After the beans are completely cooked, turn off the slow cooker. Allow the beans to remain in the slow cooker while they cool, and then drain them in a strainer or colander. (When beans are cooked, they release an indigestible sugar, or oligosaccharide, into the water. This sugar is responsible for the gas and intestinal distress that often accompanies a good bean dish. Draining the beans allows most of the sugar to be discarded along with the water.)
    Use the beans right away or store them in the refrigerator or freezer.
    IMPORTANT: Cannellini and kidney beans must be boiled for fifteen minutes prior to slow cooking. Both beans contain the natural toxin lectin phytohemagglutinin, which may not be adequately destroyed in a slow cooker.
