Perfect Black Beans

That's right, these beans came out perfect. The essential tool for these perfect beans is a crock pot. It is a two day process for plump, and juicy beans.

1 lb. package of Goya dried black beans
8 cups of water


Open package and place the beans in a colander. Rinse with water. Pick through the beans to remove foreign materials if any. Place the beans in a large bowl and add 8 cups of water. Allow the beans to soak for 8 hours. Then, drain the beans and rinse with water. Add the beans to the crock pot and cover with water. Cook the beans on low for 10 hours. After the beans are cooked, you then add desired seasoning. Save the bean juice for refried beans.

You have perfect plump beans to add to soup, cooked rice, salads.

To make refried beans you put olive oil in a pan, add beans and some of the bean juice and mash the beans while you cook them.
