Ok, I am a BEAN moron LOL I started the beans yesterday, did a pre-cook for 10 min. let them sit for 1 hour rinsed and then put in the crock pot and let them cook over night. I turned off the heat and now have turned it back on for this evenings meal with the ham in it. The beans are TOO soft now! I cannot get this right and it's driving me mad!

I need someone to hold my hand while I make beans
