  1. Rinse beans well and discard any stones or shriveled beans.
  2. Place beans in a large (5 qt.) saucepan, with enough water to cover by about 2 inches. Cover pot and let beans soak overnight.
  3. Drain beans and return to pot. Add onion, garlic, bay leaf, and 6 cups water; heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to medium-low and partially cover. Simmer for 45 minutes to one hour, or until beans are tender, stirring occasionally.
  4. Drain beans, reserving 1 ½ cups cooking liquid if making red beans and rice. Discard bay leaf. Use Easy Red Beans for Red Beans and Rice. If not using beans immediately, cover and refrigerate or freeze.
