    2. +Dine with Jane..I Live in the US but I lived in Kenya for a year(last year).I bought some black beans and I could have sworn they were sweet,but everybody taste palette is different.Anyway they were extremely hard even after I soak them the night before and cooked them for what seemed like hours.They still remained very hard..I admit they had a good flavor but too hard.I think I bought some bad black beans๐Ÿ˜€.If that’s possibleโ˜บ๏ธ.hehe
