  1. 1 pound dried kidney beans
  2. 8 cups room-temperature water
  3. PAM spray
  4. 1 large head of garlic, unpeeled, top 1/2 inch cut off to expose cloves
  5. 1 large fresh sage sprig
  6. 1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  7. 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

Place beans in large bowl. Cover with cold water (at least 6 cups) and let soak overnight.

Drain beans. Place in heavy large pot. Add 8 cups room-temperature water, garlic, sage, and black peppercorns. Bring to simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium low; simmer uncovered 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Mix in 1 teaspoon coarse salt. Continue to simmer until beans are tender, adding more water if needed to keep beans covered, about 30 minutes longer. Cool beans in liquid 1 hour.

Using slotted spoon, transfer beans to serving bowl, reserving bean cooking liquid, if desired, but discarding garlic, sage, and peppercorns. Season beans to taste with pepper.
