I am now beginning hour 3 of cooking giant dried lima beans which had been soaked overnight (and then some) before I started cooking them. They are still as crunchy as a cracker! What happened? Could it be related to the fact that most of their their skins came off in the soaking? Are these beans really old? Is there any point to continuing? I'm ready to pour them in the compost pile.
