Thank you, I will try that. I had not tried cooking them without soaking before. Bob emoticon

Do you stir them much? That will make this happen too.

Do you soak longer than 6 hours? That could be the reason. Have you tried the no soak stovetop method? I bring the beans to a boil, simmer for 2 hours, adding water as necessary. It hasn't failed me yet and the liquid makes a great soup base.

Do you put anything like baking soda in while the beans cook? That makes the skins split for some reason. Otherwise, it could be the amount of time you cook them.

Every time I cook dry beans. they shed their skins. It doesn't affect the flavor but looks lousy. I soak according to directions and cook over low heat. This has happened with Great Northern, Black eyed peas and canneloni beans. Any suggestions??
