have been cooking them for so many centuries, there
are inevitably many suggestions and much lore about
the best way to cook them. I have not heard of the
vinegar suggestion, but I suspect that whatever
supposed benefit would be so slight as to not be worth
the extra bother.

Perhaps the most widely circulated bit of lore is that
salt should not be added to the bean pot until they
are completely done, because the beans will never get
soft. That was tested by some PBS show and found to
have no effect one way or the other as to the ultimate
softness of the beans.
