Jill, I have heard that you should not consume the juice from cooking Black Beans because of a byproduct off the beans. That is why you always rinse black beans in a can, not just because it looks unappetizing. Have you heard this before? Love your video’s and recipe’s! Especially the Crack dressing! Thanks for everything!!

I have heard this. I used to soak mine overnight and then pour off the water. There are so many opinions out there saying whether to soak or not and I have tried both. I get the same results from both soaking and not soaking. Meaning, we still get gas =)

Some plants like beans are high in lectins and soaking, then pressure cooking them, destroys those lectins making them safer to eat. So I have been told. What is your view on this?

You are right. I think soaking before cooking them is definitely better and healthier for you.

At least a couple hours or until the beans are soft.

Thanks. Pls always include stovetop cooking times in your recipe directions for those of us who don’t own an Instantpot.

I have a small pressure cooker. Wondering if this is too much volume for my appliance. What size is your instant pot? Approximately how much volume do you get in the end? Could just use my crockpot. Thanks. Enjoy your show and recipes!

My Instant Pot is an 8 qt. You could always cut the recipe in half .
