put a small potatoe in the pot with the beans when you first start cooking them. The potatoe will cook up and be nothing but thickening for the juice and it does seem to help. Or you could always go to kroger and buy some Beano

I bring the beans to a boil and cook for about 2 minutes. Turn them off and let set for about a half an hour. Pour that off and use fresh water and start again, cooking as you wish, fatback, porkchop, whatever you use to season, throw a chopped onion in! When you pour off the first boil you will pour off the farts.

You can cook a carrot or small onion in them. Just throw away after the beans are cooked. Do this all the time.

id rather do it your way than tubby's way.
if you boil it like he said and then pour it out, then you have tossed out the part that makes thick red soup.
after picking out rocks and washing the beans, i just soak them in a teaspoon of soda and water, for awhile then cook them in the soda water.

After cooking, approximately 5 min before you remove them from the heat, add about half a teaspoon of baking soda! Be prepared to stir them, as they will begin to foam alot! This cooks off the "gas"! After the foaming has stopped you are good to go. Turn off the heat and enjoy! Just be sure not to add too much so you don't alter the flavor! Half of a teaspoon of baking soda will suffice for a pound of pintos!

Try a little ginger in the beans. Ginger is good for your stomach.

For a long time I thought my kids loved my beans. Then I realized they only like what they made them do. They thought it was funny.

Use red pepper! Cheaper than Beano.

I tried the baking soda stuff a long time ago, they tasted right funky. I still think if you bring to a boil, let set awhile and pour it off, you will pour off the farts. Look at the water, it will be GREEN. The rich 'soup' you want will come after, when you cook them with your seasonings. Never saw a bean I didn't adore......put put ha ha
