Tips for working with dried beans: 

1. Before cooking, dried beans should be soaked. For each pound of dried beans, add to 4 quarts of cold water mixed with 2 Tbsp. salt and soak overnight (the salt helps maintain the firmness of the skins during the cooking process.) Alternately, you can shorten the soaking time to 1 hour by covering the beans with 2 quarts of boiling water and 2 Tbsp. salt. In either case, drain and rinse the beans well before cooking.

2. Cook the soaked beans in plenty of water. Add beans to cold water (salted at a ratio of 1tsp. salt per 4 quarts water) and bring to boil; reduce to a low simmer and cook until beans are tender, roughly 40-60 minutes.
