Instructions
  1. Rinse beans and strain well. DO NOT SOAK.
  2. Combine all required ingredients (except bay leaves) in inner pot and mix well.
  3. Place bay leaves on top of soup mixture. This won’t guarantee you can find them later, but it usually makes it easier.
  4. Close and lock lid, and set pressure valve to “sealing”, “closed”, or the equivalent for your machine.
  5. Turn on to “manual” setting, and set for 50 minutes on high pressure.
  6. Allow to release pressure naturally (don’t open the valve yourself) when finished cooking, and fish out your bay leaves (they add wonderful flavor, but can be very poisonous when the leaf is ingested).
  7. Top as desired and serve immediately.
