I want to used dried black beans instead of canned. What volume of dried beans do I soak for an equivalent of one typical can, and how much water should I soak it in?
Amanda is a co-founder of Food52.
1 cup dried black beans is equal to 2 1/2 to 3 cups cooked black beans. Place the beans in a bowl and cover with 3 inches of water.
Also note that the beans need to be cooked as well as being soaked. Soak them in the water for 3 hours or overnight, then drain and cook them in a pot covered with 2 inches of fresh water for about an hour.
