- Cancel the sauté function and Choose Pressure Cook/Manual, and use the + or – or dial to choose 18 minutes. High pressure. It will take a few minutes for the pot to come to pressure..
- When the cooking time has finished, let the pot sit undisturbed for 15 minutes to naturally release some of the pressure. Then turn the steam release knob to Venting to quick release the remaining pressure..
- When the pin in the lid drops down, carefully open the lid, facing away from you. Remove the bay leaves and the bone or ham hocks, if you used them..
- Taste and add the salt as desired. Serve hot. The soup will thicken quite a bit when it cools, that is normal..
