    To make the bean softer. You need to boil the bean with water until it's soft first then follow the recipe given as above. 😊  -  18 Jun 2015


    I like the taste, but I had problems getting the beans to cook to a soft consistency. Cooked them for 2 hours, but they are still a bit grainy.  -  05 Sep 2014
