  1. I purchased 5lbs of the Christmas Lima Beans. The package says if cooking in a pressure cooker unsoaked, the cooking time is 40 minutes. Your chart says 16-18 minutes.

  2. Hi, Tami –
    Sorry we didn’t respond quickly – just saw this!
    16-18 minutes is if the beans are pre-soaked and processed in pressure cooker.
    Hope this is helpful and you can email me directly at steve@chilismith.com
    We appreciate you and apologize for delay.
    Steve
