Soaking Beans

I only used that method once with Black beans. While the beans weren't as tender as I would have liked, all the color was there and looked really good.

AH! I misinterpreted, sorry! Well i tried canned black beans but they always taste "off". I guess I need to try different brands. I will take all of your suggestions! thanks again :D!

Soaking Beans

Not to be disgusting but I always experience a little gas after ingesting some beans. I dislike soaking black beans because I love the color and I've read that that's where the antioxidants are. I try to use some of the herbs and spices cookbooks claim to reduce gas and ease digestion. Cumin, Tumeric, Chili, Parsley, Oregano... I forgot the other ones. But if soaking my Black Beans eliminates bloating, bubbling and poofing completely then I'll do some experimenting. (Im a new cook).

Ok so it is ok to soak at room temp. The only beans I don't soak are black beans, I want to preserve the deep color and rich meaty flavor so I just simmer longer.

Hello. I use to soak beans overnight in the refrigerator but also heard that it is better to soak them at room temperature. I don't know the advantages/disadvantages between the two. What are they?
