I'm a teen trying to cook for himself and I wanted to make some red beans and rice.
After I boiled the water, I started soaking the red beans and in just 5-8 minutes, the beans pruned up like your fingers in bath.
I got so scared (I still am), because I think I did something wrong because my grandmothers red beans never looked like that. (At least when I ate them.)
My mother got the beans from a free food place and they've been in the cabinet for a few months now.
2 lbs (900 g) of Morrison Farms light red kidney beans in 8 cups of boiled water.
The boiled water has 1/4 cup of kosher salt dissolved.
