And I am not a foodie blogger. I'm not even all that great of a cook. I can keep people from starving, but I tend to fall back to the old favorites instead of being creative.
However, in the interest of getting more people to eat beans, I will give you a peek at what I did yesterday. We can pretend that I am a foodie blogger, just for once.
I pressure cooked the beans for 20 minutes at 15 pounds of pressure.
I then ran the pressure cooker under cold water, while GENTLY releasing the pressure slowly by tilting the weighted jiggler ever so slightly.
When it stopped hissing, I removed the cover and found cooked beans! And no foam. =) Next time I will not run cold water over the cooker or release pressure quickly by tilting the weighted jiggler. The beans were cooked, but not quite to my liking. I think an extra 15 minutes in the cooker as the pressure naturally came down would have finished the job nicely.
P.S. The chili was very good!
