Instructions
Stove-Top Preparation
  1. Sort and rinse 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Orca Beans. Place in a medium size pot and add 4 cups of water. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until tender, about 60 minutes. Make sure to keep beans covered with water during cooking; if water level is low, add additional water and reduce the cooking temperature. Makes approximately 3 cups cooked beans.
Pressure Cooker Preparation
  1. Sort and rinse 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill Orca Beans. Place in pressure cooker and add 3 cups of water. Secure lid, set pressure to high and begin heating on high heat. When steam begins a steady flow from the release valve, reduce heat to medium and let cook for 17 – 21 minutes. When cooking time has completed, turn heat off and allow pressure to decrease naturally for 15 minutes. Carefully remove lid and drain water from beans.

    I noticed that there is a need for a pressure cooker, for the preparation of many of your beans, or pulses. Is there a way to cook these without the use of a pressure cooker.
    Thank You!

      Though we have pressure cooker instructions listed as a preparation method, we also list stove-top directions. In the case of our Orca Bean instructions, the stove-top preparation is listed first.

    The Orca bag instructions I have do not show to soak them. Do Orcas not need soaking? Some other writers do instruct soaking them. I am confused.
