How to Cook Dried Beans

Canned beans are good pantry staples, but there are many benefits to cooking your own dried beans. They're one of the least expensive proteins at pennies per pound. They also can help you control the sodium in your diet, as most canned beans have added salt, unless you use low-sodium or no salt added varieties.
