About beans in a pressure cooker
Cooking in a pressure cooker assumes that the water will not boil away, but keep in mind that the water will soak into the beans.
In a pressure cooker, the beans boil a little due to intense pressure, so it is advisable to pour enough water so that the beans do not drain after cooking: for every half a glass of beans, 1.5 cups of water.
Due to the variety of pressure cookers and the differences in their approach to cooking, it is recommended that you read the instructions for a specific pressure cooker.
The fastest way to cook beans is in a pressure cooker, as the cereal is cooked under pressure and at a temperature of over 100 degrees: even stale cereal becomes completely soft. The same method is the fastest, because you do not need to monitor the fire and water level, and after an hour of cooking, the pressure cooker will continue cooking under absolutely natural conditions that do not require the attention of the cook.
When cooking a large amount of beans, keep in mind that the beans will greatly increase in size. Therefore, the pressure cooker cannot be loaded more than half, otherwise it will not be possible to achieve the desired pressure level.
