    Default The beans came out great!

    Yes, Sheldon, they did! They would rival any canned beans. I got these
    online at a place that also sells nuts. I got some hazelnuts from them as
    well. I am thinking now that the store brand kidney beans might not have
    been in such good condition, even though they were fresh. Many were split
    before I even cooked these.

    These new beans were the dark ones that we prefer. Very few bad ones in
    there. I checked them after 20 minutes of cooking and they still weren't
    done. 30 minutes was perfect. I then added the salt. Yum!

    Sheldon is often as full of **** as he is of himself, which is an
    interesting observation!

    Well I do think you need to be very careful when cooking beans from dried.
    I would like to say that canned beans are always perfectly formed with no
    split ones in there but that really isn't the case. Oddly enough, the cheap
    ones have always been fine. It was the ones that I bought at Whole Foods
    that were horrid! They were very expensive, organic ones and although I
    prefer to eat organic foods, I also prefer it to be tasty and toothsome!
    What I got was a mass of mush. Split, mushy beans that seemed like they
    forgot to put in any seasoning.

    I will not say that every single one of my beans came out perfectly. There
    are a few split ones in there but only a very few. So few that if I were
    going to serve these to company I would just carefully pick those out. But
    daughter and I don't care, really!
