Soaking Dried Beans

bluedog67 | Feb 20, 2009 03:04 PM

I bought some beautiful dried cranberry beans at the farmers market. The farmer told me about a method of soaking/simmering that was shorter than the over night method, and resulted in more tender beans. It seemed to be a little more trouble by simmering and replacing the water, but could be done same day.

Alas, my memory fails me on the details. Does anyone know about this method?
