I debated putting this in the pit but flaming legumes has to be worse than that the thread bashing that 11 year old kid who got lost.
I got the brilliant idea to make a crock pot full of beans. Not quite chili but not plain beand and ham hocks either. I put a little of everything in and it smells nice but the damn beans aren’t cooked yet.
I admit that I did not soak the beans overnight. The package said the alternative was to bring them to temp and boil them for two minutes then soak for 1-4 hours. I called my mom and asked her advice about doing that then going all day in a crock pot and she thought it would work. I actually boiled the beans for more than five minutes then threw them in the crock pot and set it to high about ten AM yesterday and added my other ingredients througout the day. TheLadyLion got home later than usual so I checked the beans at 9:00 and they were still hard. Not so hard you couldn’t eat them but not right for eating. I turned the pot to low but when I got up this morning they beans are still too hard. WTF? I turned them to high and I hope they will get soft by the end of today. What am I doing wrong?
