And the first hour or so of simmering, also. I don't put anything but epizote and baking soda in when I cook them until they are already softened up. (A side note... I don't like ham, but if I did I would throw a ham hock in, but not even a carrot until the beans are soft.)
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
