Bean Soup! Help me quick before I ruin more food! →
[More:] It's 7:20 am eastern. I've got to go in about 20 minutes, maybe 25.
So I soaked assorted dried beans overnight in preparation for soup making. But I won't actually cook the soup till tonight. Should I continue soaking the beans today, or drain now and set aside?
I don't want to leave a crock pot on all day, and I also don't yet have any potential meat or onions or anything.
Assuming I don't ruin the dang beans, further tips on prep are welcome.
