Small white navy beans are the most popular thanks to pork and bean dishes and baked beans.
A small white oval, mild flavored bean, also known as the pea bean. It is prized for its smooth texture and nutty flavor. When cooked it has a powdery texture. As it is one of the most favorite of beans it is perfect for your food storage plan.
Directions for Use:
For overnight soaking, cover each cup of beans with 3 cups water and let stand overnight or 12 hours. For quicker results, add dry beans to boiling water boiling 2 minutes and let stand for 1 hour. In cooking, use same water. Cover and simmer slowly in water until beans are tender, about 2 hours. Add more water if necessary. Season with salt, pepper, onion, or garlic.
To keep skin from bursting, simmer gently and stir as little as possible. Add 1/8 tsp. baking soda per cup of beans to shorten cooking time in hard water. Do not add tomatoes, lemon juice, wine, or vinegar until beans are almost tender as these are acidic and delay softening.
