This recipe works for any dry bean except lentils, which don't need as much cook time.
The apple cider vinegar really helps to liven up the flavor.
If you have extra juice after making the beans, it tastes great in soups and helps to thicken.
If a pound of beans seems like too much to cook all at once, the recipe will also work in half. Or, the beans also freeze nicely which is great to have on hand in a pinch.
