My soup package says "check for stones" - what does this mean?
Because beans grow in the ground, sometimes there will be a grey stone that gets through our bean growers and the Bean Ladies' rigorous inspection. When you are rinsing your beans, it will likely stand out.
How long do I soak my beans for?
When making some of our soups or side dishes, soaking beans in cold water overnight or 7 hours is sufficient. You can also do a hot quick soak. Bring beans to a rapid boil in lots of water for 3 minutes, remove from heat, cover then let stand for 1 hour. Voila!
Can I alter a Bean Ladies recipe?
Of course! We use our family recipes for each soup or side dish, but you know your family best. If you don’t want something so spicy, you can always put in less than the entire spice package too!
