Oven Cooked Dry Beans

“This is more a method than it is a recipe, but I tried it with navy beans and it actually works. Just think of it! Dry beans cooked in less than 2 hours (mine cooked in 90 minutes) and you don't even have to pre-soak them. I found this at a site called the Kitchn. It says in the article that you can also use a clay pot.”
