Cajun Style 15 Bean Soup Recipe

Although there are some beans in this mix that do not require soaking, I go ahead and soak them all. I mean who would want to pick out certain beans to soak, right?!? Soaking also gets rid of some of the, ahem, gases.
 
The longer beans soak, the more gas producing compounds break down. Pardon me. Soaking also reduces cooking time.
 
There are basically four important steps to using any dry beans:
1) Clean
2) Rinse
3) Soak
4) Cook
 
Clean and rinse the beans and place in a bowl, add 1/2 of the stock and fill the rest with water until the beans are covered. Reserve the rest of the stock for cooking the beans. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator to soak overnight.
