I love this mix. I especially love that they have Lima beans in the mix. Besides being very nutritious with fiber, and B vitamins, Limas are a wonderful source for minerals like manganese which boosts the nervous system and brain health. They also have Potassium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, selenium, and calcium.

I've been eating various beans from this website for over 20 years, in particular the Tepary beans, and been experimenting with the cooking side for as long. Various types of beans have different soaking requirements and length of time to cook. Most of the beans on the list overlap in soaking and cooking times, but several do not. Tepary beans, for example, I soak (to de-gas-rinse daily) for four days and then cook at 15lbs pressure for 40 minutes. In these eclectic mixes of beans you are bound to have some beans not soaked long enough and others too long, some overcooked and others undercooked. Add a little water and moderate heat and the natural gas in beans (part of the germination process) will be released. This can happen outside in a soaking bowl, or inside your gut after you've eaten them.
