Shuck Beans

I don't remember shuck beans having tender skins. What was the trick with the cooking or drying process that makes them not be so chewy? I think that I would dry some if I could eat them easily.

I saw your question about the skins being tough. Growing up we always strung ours and air dried them, they were occasionally tough. Since I either dry them on screens in the greenhouse or dry them in a dehydrator they seem to always be tender. We always changed the water after soaking overnight then again after pare -boiling them, then added seasoning meat to finish cooking them.

I evidently didn't cook my beans long enough--they were tough.
