Overcooked beans

lafarrell | Mar 25, 2011 04:42 AM

I recently decided to try to switch from canned beans to dried beans. I soaked a pound of cannelloni beans overnight in cold water and then cooked them in the crock pot during the day. I must have had them in there on slow for about 10 hours. Too long, I know. But they really fell apart. My first question is: can I save these beans for anything or do I have to just toss them? Second, are beans very unforgiving when you cook them? Do you have to pay close attention as you would with pasta? Thank you.
