This will produce stout, thick roots.No soaking necessary before cooking.

To keep dried beans as fresh as possible, store them in food-safe storage containers with tight-fitting lids rather than in the plastic bags.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
When stored properly, beans can last several years. Even 10+ years if you remove the oxygen from the container!
