Soaking Red Beans - they seemed to split open, is that okay?

love2cookmb | Feb 22, 2008 04:13 PM

I know that there are numerous posts about soaking beans. I looked there but didn't find my answer. My question is not whether or not to soak beans, I already chose to soak them. They've been soaking for about 3 hours now and most of the beans have opened up. Is that normal? I'm making red beans and rice. Is it going to ruin the recipe? Should I start over? Please help!
