I soaked dried lupine beans overnight. Cooked them for 90 min. Then soaked again for 6 days changing the water daily. They're still firm. Any tips?

I haven't cooked lupini beans. I did just buy some lupini flour though. Um, it sounds like you have really old ones maybe. And if you cook them for nine, you soak them, you cook them, you soak them again for six days, changing the water daily, they're still firm. I would get rid of those. What about you, Vesanto? That's funny. Yeah, when they get older they take a lot more Cooking, right? But something that you had to soak for six days changing the water, I would just get rid of that. Dave, I'm sorry that we can't help you with that. So you have to be practical sometimes.
