Kidney Bean soak too long?

Hi...

I started a soak of kidney beans 2 days ago. I usually do an overnight or 24 hours.

Does anyone know if these are still OK to cook and how they may turn out?

Thanks

Werner

    Are the beans in the refrigerator? They should be fine as long as they have not fermented. My kidney beans soaked for 24 hours and I'm making chili today.

      No not now. I had pulled them out intending to make chili as well. I wasnt able to cook them and had never let them soak that long so wasnt sure if it was safe or wise. Dont want to cook something unsafe or ruin a good pot of chili either.

      Make sure they don't smell funky...then cook 'em. Probably won't take long to make them tender enough to eat, but boiling them for at least a half-hour or so will probably kill anything that might ail you.
