Do I have to soak the beans to get delicious Baked Beans?
Soaked or not, the Instant Pot definitely does a great job cooking the perfect beans. Although soaking is not mandatory, it is highly recommended as it aids digestion. Soaking beans removes indigestible complex sugars that cause gas. It’s best to soak beans overnight, but sometimes if we forget, we will soak them even for a few hours in the morning before cooking them or soak the beans in the Instant Pot itself for around 30 minutes.
Why is using a pressure cooker/Instant pot better than making baked beans on the stovetop?
It is way faster if you’re starting with dry beans for last minute preparation or if you forgot to soak them the night before. No soaking overnight needed. You can get the recipe completed in around an hour, the beans go from dry to perfectly soft within 60 minutes. Instant pot simplifies the traditional recipe to a dump and prepares the recipe that is not time-consuming and does not need to babysit.
