Soak 1 pound of garbanzo beans in 8 cups cold water in a 6 quart saucepan or Dutch oven 8 hours or overnight. The beans will expand during the process. Drain the beans. Use as directed in specific recipe applications. If they are needed quickly, place the beans in a Dutch oven & cover with 8 cups water. Bring to a boil & cook 2 minutes. Turn off the heat. Let stand 1 1/2 hours. Drain.

Once the beans have been soaked, cooking them is a cinch. Return the beans to the Dutch oven with 8 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover & simmer with the lid ajar, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until tender. Add 1 teaspoon salt after 1 hour to keep the beans from getting tough & to keep the cooking time to a minimum. Season further & use as directed in specific recipe applications.
