	When I was visiting my friends in Costa Rica we had no refrigerator
to use.  (no electricity!)  We therefore had to leave the beans out on top
of the stove (covered of course).  The beans would be heated once in the
morning, and then again at night before eating.  This was done each day
until all were consumed.  We did not get sick, and we ate LOTS of black
beans.  :-)))))))))
