Fixed this tonight and enjoyed. However, for pre-soaked beans, twelve hours cooking time just too much. I soaked overnight and four or five hours cooking would've been fine. I cut the recipe in half and still had enough for a small army!

Okay, thanks. I normally cook beans on the stove. I will use your recipe and convert to stovetop cooking. I think your recipe sounds great.

yeah I usually make that much in mine but if you fear it won't hold that amount you can always reduce the amount of beans and still cook for the same amount of time or what you desire but yes it pretty much makes a full pot

Does a 7 quart cooker hold four pounds of cooked beans?
