Entered for safe-keeping for ZWT. By Ana Patuleia Ortins from "Portuguese Homestyle Cooking". Per Ms. Ortins, "While you can use canned beans in a pinch, keep a watch on the sodium level. If time permits, use the less expensive and healthier method of presoaking dried legumes overnight, rinsing them then cooking them in unsalted water or broth and set aside until needed. You can do this a day or two ahead.. To have presoaked beans cook in your soup, add salt only towards the end when the beans are tender. Salting too early will result in tough beans."
