Had dried raw kidney beans in cupboard.
Soaked them overnight like packet suggested, then put them in pan with water and heated them but can't remember if they definitely boiled and for how long.
Then they were slow cooker in with a chilli for 9 hours on low.
Panicking me and DS will be ill for tomorrow....

I'd eat them if they're soft.
Only on MN have I read it's supposed to be a precise science or deadly risk.

They need to be boiled for at least 10 min on a really fast boil to kill the toxins. Hth

If they are on all day, and have been soaked and fast boiled first you will be fine.

Hooray. My DSis fed my DF undercooked kidney beans once, he hasn't been able to touch them since and he'll eat anything.
