I am trying to make a recipe for "Barbecue Molasses Beans". It calls for a 1 lb bag of dry pinto beans, 3 cups water, an 18 oz bottle of barbecue sauce, 1/4 cup molasses and a bit of onion.
I tried soaking the beans overnight in 6 cups of water -- 14 hours, to be exact. Then I drained the original water, put in the rest of the ingredients, and cooked on Low in the slow cooker for 10 hours (the recipe said 8-9 hours).
The beans are still fairly hard. I am frustrated. Any suggestions?
