How to de-gas beans
Not sure about posting this kind of subject on the heels of the hilarious chocolate chip pancake & sausage on a stick thread...
I always soak my beans overnight (or bring to a boil and let sit an hour) and then discard the water (twice if I'm soaking them overnight), but it does not really de-gas them. So I pretty much gave up on making bean soup.
Now we've been buying the delicious black bean soup from Whole Foods, and find it does not cause any problems whatsoever along, er, those lines. So obviously I am doing something wrong. I want to make the black bean soup myself because one, it's terribly expensive pre-made and two, we can't take the hot chipotle peppers they put in there.
HOW DO YOU DE-GAS BEANS??? A big thanks if you can help me solve this one.
