I have to run off to work. I'll check back later to see how it comes out...I've been using a pressure cooker for years!

Do I HAVE to soak my dry beans if I use the pressure cooker?

From Express Cooking, by Barry Bluestein & Kevin Morrissey: "No tonly will the cooker cook your beans quickly, it will also eliminate the need to soak beans for an extended period of time...Just combine the beans with water in the pressure cooker and cook for 2-3 minutes at high pressure as the first step in most bean recipes." This is for beans that will continue to cook in a recipe, like chili.

Only fill the cooker halfway with beans and water. Make sure to rinse the gasket and steam valve between uses.

I have the chart for bean cooking times, if you have some specific beans in mind I'll look up the timing for you.

LOL! They are in a cookbook, that I was reading from. That's why I said specific beans, so I wouldn't have to type the whole chart.

I can and will type the chart for you, but not tonight! There are 28 beans listed

Okay, now I have the giggles...

Giggling at beans? Is that why they say She's full of beans?

You are going to love your pressure cooker. I cook whole roasts from frozen in an hour. But do read your manual. You don't want to mess around with hot water and pressure. You can cook the roast mostly done and near the end throw in your veggies so they don't get over cooked. Enjoy.
