didn't wash the beans...

sukisooo | Jan 28, 2012 08:48 AM

I soaked 2 cups of Bob's Red Mill 13 Bean Soup Mix last night, but i skipped the "wash the beans" step (don't ask).

So they soaked and plumped overnight. I rinsed them well this morning, added them to a pot with a ham hock and 2 1/2 quarts of clean cold water, brought to boil and now they are simmering.

I skimmed the scum that came from the initial boil, but the broth now is decidedly grey looking. They have been simmering for 45 minutes.

Is this pot of beans garbage?
