    I think your receipe for beans above has some errors, I tried it just as written and ended up wioth hard dry beans. Every other time I have made these the ov en temp has been lower and always covered. But felt I needed to try this method, my family vetoed it as they placed beans in the garbage.

    Shouldn’t this recipe be presented with a recipe for brown bread?

    One of the problems with the recipes is the addition of salt before the beans actually soften. I make a mixture of salt and a bit of water and stir it into the beans close to the end of the cooking period. Salt can toughen the beans. I also cook the beans in a covered pot for at least 7 hours in a 175 degree oven. I’ve never heard of baking them in a high-heat oven.
