Old pinto beans
I have old pinto beans. The bag says to use b4 Oct '09. How do the beans change when they get old. Are they still edible or do they taste bad? (9-12-11)
They are still safe to eat, but they may not cook tender, and may be chewy. You can try soaking them and sprouting them, of if you do decide to cook them, be sure to soak overnight and allow extra cooking time.
