After soaking 12 hours, they should
have cooked up tender. Strange...

Next time you do a batch of beans,
try using the quick-soak method
(just to see if it helps the situation).


Quick-Soak Method (replaces overnight soaking)

Put the beans in water to cover + 2".
Bring to a boil.
Boil them hard for 15 minutes.
Turn off heat, cover, and let soak 1 - 2 hours.
Drain, and replace water to same level.
Bring to boil, boil 15 minutes,
then turn down to medium simmer,
and cook, covered, until tender
(about 1 & 1/2 hours).

Hope that helps!
