I cooked the beans as stated over night, woke up to dried up and burned beans, I think maybe soaking overnight would be better than on low, i used 4 cups water and 1 # beans. Wont use this recipe again

CDKitchen Staff Reply:
Sounds like you have a newer crockpot that cooks "hotter" maybe? If yours has a warm setting I'd use that in place of recipes that call for cooking something on low. Standard crockpots could cook on low overnight and not overcook anything but many of the newer models today run far too hot to do that.
