I love making beans the long way....however, they always come out broken and kinda mushed. I know I have to be doing something wrong. I usually soak them overnight, drain the soaking water, add new water, then cook til tender. What am I missing?
do you mean black soy beans ? i tried those once, i seem to rememeber in TKD Alicia says to dry roast them a bit before boiling them and i burn mine a bit and subsequently they tasted burnt. Not nice ! How do you do them ?! Just soak and boil ?
I'm relatively new to beans, so I've been working with canned... Is there anything else I should know before I switch over to the real deal? Just buy them and soak overnight, then boil? Do you soak them on your counter top or in the refrigerator? Cover them? Wow, who knew I was this bean ignorant! Any advice would be much appreciated...thanks!
Good question. Probably the same reason that canned vegetables are blah too though. Preservatives, processing, they're old? I bet someone on here actually knows. Someone on here seems to actually know everything!
