I have been trying to use dried beans for cooking, instead of canned, but I
think I'm doing something wrong.  I'm also trying to sprout them a little
because I read somewhere that that made them easier to digest.  When I've
soaked, sprouted, and cooked red beans they've come out fine.  However,
whenever I've tried to use yellow beans (garbanzo and soy) they develop an
terrible odor that doesn't go away when i cook them.  The technique I am
currently using:
put beans in mason jar with cheese cloth as a lid
soak beans overnight
rinse and drain every 8 hours or so for a few days.
Am I doing something wrong and making the beans go bad?
