Soaking beans in broth/stock?

nasv | Nov 26, 201008:51 PM

Has anyone ever soaked their beans overnight/a-few-hours in broth/stock instead of water? I was thinking of doing this since I have a lot of turkey stock fresh from the holidays. I have typically liked retaining my soaking water (instead of dumping it) when cooking some beans, I find if more flavorful, and I thought I could do the same with stock.

And... if I use the stock to soak the beans, should it be refrigerated instead? Does that affect the soaking in any way?

Happy holiday weekend!
