If you're bothered by gas when you eat beans, try this simple cure for your problem.
Put the beans in a large pot and cover them with water. Bring them to a boil and take them
off the heat. This breaks the capsules surrounding the beans and allows stachyose,
verbascose and raffinose, the gas-causing sugars, to escape into the water. Stir a teaspoon or so of baking soda into the water (to make it more alkaline) and let the beans soak overnight. Drain the
soaking water off the beans and rinse them several times. (If you eat the soaking liquid,
you will cause unbelievable discomfort for yourself and those around you). Then proceed with your recipe to cook the beans.
