Instant Pot® White Beans
Instead of buying canned beans, I use my pressure cooker to cook them from dry--no soaking required! If you do decide to soak the beans, check your appliance manual because cooking time will be shorter.
Cook beans 2 to 3 minutes less if they're going into a soup, because they will continue cooking.
Cooked beans freeze well! Pour cooled beans into an airtight container with some of the cooking liquid. Leave room at the top for expansion; cover with the lid and freeze. Or pour into a heavy-duty zip-top bag with some of the cooking liquid. Seal and place on a plate to freeze flat. Once frozen, the flat bags are easier to store.
