Soak Navy Beans for 6-24 hours before cooking in plenty of cold water. When ready to cook, drain and rinse in cold water. Transfer to a pot and cover with plenty of cold water. Bring to a boil on high heat, cover, and reduce the heat to maintain a gentle rolling boil. Cook until the beans are soft and tender, about 30-35 minutes. Drain and rinse well with cold water.
