Recipe as stated is unsafe

January 13, 2017
Preparing red kidney beans in a slow cooker can result in severe food poisoning because of a naturally occurring toxin in the beans called phytohemagglutinin (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytohaemagglutinin). According to the FDA, to be safe, red kidney beans should be soaked in cold water for at least five hours and then cooked in fresh, rapidly boiling water for at least 10 minutes before finishing them in a slow cooker.
