Cooked Dried Beans

  • 1/2 pound dried red or white beans, like pinto, cranberry, or cannellini
  • 12 leaves (around 2 branches) new savvy
  • 4 entire cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt

    Step 1
    Place beans in a medium bowl with enough water to cover. Transfer to refrigerator to soak overnight.

    Step 2
    Drain beans, and add to a medium stockpot. Add enough water to cover by 2 inches. Add the sage and garlic. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook until tender, about 30 minutes. About 15 minutes before the beans are done, add the salt. Drain, discarding garlic and sage.
