    1) Soak the dried beans for 8 hours or overnight in a bowl with 4 cups of water.
    2) The next day, cook them in the rest of the water in a saucepan on medium to low heat until tender, about 2 to 2.5 hours.
    3) Once done, drain and transfer the beans to a bowl.
    4) Drain, rinse and cover with hot water as often as you can, every 4-6 hours for about 2-3 days, until the bitter taste of the beans is gone.
    5) Once the bitter taste of the beans is gone, place them into a jar with water and the two tablespoons of salt.
    6) Store them in the jars with the brine for 2-3 days then serve.
