what's with the beans...

Hi everyone,

I love dried beans but..everytime I cook them and leave them they turn really hard. Useally this happens when I cook them in more than just water, like when i add sugar or soja or stuff like that.
Any bright ideas?? :roll:

How DO you leave them? In the refrig? On the counter? Are they still warm? Are they covered? How long does it take for them to get hard?
Thanks. :)

It's best to cook beans in nothing but water. Also, if you suspect the beans have been sitting on the shelf for a while, soak them longer - a lot longer. 24 hours refrigerated.

Thanks scott,
But what's the chemistry part . I find it odd that a perfectly well cooked bean can turn hard again in 10 minutes just because you add some things to make it taste beter... :roll:
