Dried Cannellini Beans--Split while Soaking (??)

erica | Jan 21, 2010 10:46 AM

About 2 hours ago I put a cup of imported Italian white beans in plain cold water to soak. I just noticed that many of them are already split and kind of shriveled looking. Does this mean that the beans ere not fresh? Should I ignore and continue soaking in preparation for cooking them tomorrow?
