    I'm cleaning out the pantry and I've come across pintos and black beans, and maybe more to come, that are at least 4 years old. Maybe more. I was dumping into a bucket for the compost but thought I'd run them by here first. What do you think? Bean Soup? Or will the energy required to soften them up make them uneconomical, not to mention tasteless?
