    I wasn’t pleased with the results of the quick-soak method I tried.

    I’m going to try a real soak  (overnight) just to make sure it wasn’t simply a problem with bean quality.


    i just quick soaked my great northern beans for the boston baked recipe. they’re cooking now, so we’ll see.  lima beans are hard to do perfectly.

    Chris did you use the hip-quick soak technique?  How much time did you quick-soak your limas and what was unsatisfactory?  If the skins look a wrinkly, that’s normal, there should be SOME breakage during cooking of the bean and the skin, but not as much as cooking from dry but more than cooking from soaked.

    Let me know how your experiment went!
