Cooking Beans with or Without Salt

Michele is right on target about salt making most beans tough. Keep in
mind that the reverse is true - if you are trying to keep the more tender
beans from disintegrating, add salt to the cooking water. I always cook
dried lima beans in salted water. Several veg. cookbooks have excellent
tips on handling beans and dealing with problems - Laurel's Kitchen and
Lorna Sass' Cooking in an Ecological Kitchen (or maybe From an Ecological
Kitchen, I can't remember) come to mind immediately.
