Slow cooking black beans - help?

emo | Nov 8, 2010 04:09 PM

I have a new slow cooker and excitedly decided to try black beans. The recipe I found did *not* have me boil the beans prior to the slow cooking. I have found mixed information on whether there are toxins in black beans that need to be boiled out. After 8 hours of cooking I don't want to throw it out, could I boil now (without then tossing the cooking liquid).
I also did not soak the beans (recipe didn't call for it) either - all very different from my standard bean cooking habits...

thank you!
