question about beans
I thought I'd post a new topic about beans rather then continue to hijack the other thread.
My beans (great northern, yum) are in a pot of water on the stove waiting to boil. Why do some float in water and not others? Are the floating ones the older beans?
Also, a lot of them are kinda deformed ... like they got caught in a grinder or something, not smooth bean shaped. Is that bad? I didn't take them out because then I would lose a quarter of them!
