Need advice cooking dried beans

vvv03 | Apr 7, 2009 10:56 AM

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong. I've tried to cook dried beans several time unsuccessfully. They are usually either cannelini or borlotti beans, I've tried both the soaking overnight method and the cooking for a long time method. What I end up with is broken skin yet they are still slightly chalky, i.e. not creamy. I'm ready to throw in the towel and always opt for canned, but I know in my heart that if I get it right, they are so much better. Please walk me through the exact process that will get me there. Thanks in advance.
