Cover beans with simmering water. Add whey or lemon juice and leave in a warm place for 24 hours. Drain and rinse. Add to a pot with more water and bring to a boil. Skim all the foam off that rises the top and then lower the temperature to keep at a simmer. Cover pot and cook for 6 to 8 hours. Add the salt when the beans are very tender. (Don’t add salt till the end or they will get tough skins)

These beans are great for making hummus.
