Expert Tips

Replacing dried beans with their canned counterparts saves two to three hours in cooking time. Convenience comes with a cost though, extra sodium. Placing beans in a colander and rinsing them with water reduces sodium by one-quarter to one-third. This simple step also gives canned beans a fresher flavor.
