Getting Started - First Steps

  1. Soak the beans overnight or for at least 8 hours. Then drain the water. (You may keep this water and feed it to the plants).
  2. Rinse the beans a couple of times with fresh water then place them in a large pot and fill with fresh water to cover them so that the
    water level comes to about an inch above the beans.
  3. Cover and cook on medium heat.
  4. Keep an eye on the pot and if the water starts to boil over, place the lid at a slight angle to let more of the steam escape. Then lower the heat. Once the excess steam has gone down, you can cover the pot again.
  5. Check for the water level every now and then. Check the beans for doneness as from 30 minutes. Add more water if needed to cook
    the beans for longer. Soybeans may take from 30 minutes to one hour to cook.
