I'm lazy I just buy the bottle. However, my mom gets the dried Lupini beans.
Here is how to cook the dried beans
Pick over beans to remove any debris. Soak overnight, drain and rinse. Cover by several inches with fresh water and simmer for an hour.
Drain, rinse well, and cover with salted water (about 1 tablespoon per quart of water). Refrigerate.
Repeat this process every day for 5 days, or until the the beans are no longer bitter.
Beans will keep for weeks, covered with lightly salted water and refrigerated
This is what the dried beans look like.
One part age; three parts liquor!
