..another thing.I've gone back to including pinto beans since my mom passed away. i also use pinto bean seasoning while their cooking.im thinking that might be making a difference there.
i also use the seasoning when i cook up beans n ham.in which the seasoning makes a difference with it.
Sorta lost the thread on the pinto bean discussion. As is what is it we are using for seasoning? Thanks. My Mama in law made the best in town using water..sugar and salt. She taught me how to do it..now I make the best pintos in town following her directions. Here's her recipe.

Bring to a rapid boil for a min or two then put the lid on the pot and reduce the heat to a gentle boil. Dont touch em for abut three hours other than to peek and add boiling water if they look dry. Gently check for tenderness and saltiness..if not tender keep cooking add additional salt at the end which is usually abut another half teaspoon or so. It makes for a nice firm but tender bean and the juice is separate. Not a big conglomerated mess. Just right to be rinsed and throwed in a pot o Texas Red for them who likes beans in it. Dont use the juice that makes gritty chili. lol.

That's a good idea to add the sugar and salt. Thanks.

Foir those who follow instructions the sugar and salt balances out like the Chinese ying and yang..or as the they say at Graham..try not to let anybody grab you by the ying yang.
