Sift through the black beans to remove any large pieces of dirt or debris.
Thoroughly rinse the beans under cold running water and then pour them into the instant pot.
Pour in the water and set valve to Sealing, then select Pressure Cook setting to High for 25 minutes.
Allow the pressure cooker to come to pressurize (time will depend on your altitude, mine took 12 minutes), once it’s pressurized cooking time will begin to count down.
Once the 25 minutes are up, and the machine beeps, allow it to Natural Release for 15 minutes.
When this time is up, release any remaining pressure in the pot by setting the valve to Venting.
Carefully open the pot turning away from your face. You can use a wooden spoon instead of your hand as well.
Most of the water will have been absorbed by the beans. At this time you can add salt or any seasonings you would like.
Serve and enjoy the black beans as desired.
Only season with salt if you're going to use in recipes that it won't overpower, for something like a black bean salsa leave them plain.
You can enjoy these beans in your favorite black bean recipes, like our

- if making recipes like this you can season while cooking. We highly recommend our

Allow the beans to come to room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.
The Beans will stay fresh in the fridge for about 3-5 days but can be frozen safely for up to 8 months.
