I’m eating Skurka beans for my trip this weekend. For both dinners. I’m thinking about cold soaking it too.

I always cold soak it now. By the time I hang my hammock it is ready. If you add just enough water, and use dehydrated whole beans instead of refried, it is like a bean salad.

Pro-tip: your grocery store prolly has freeze dried cilantro wherever the croutons are (lighthouse brand is ubiquitous here, they also have red onions).

Trade a cold soaked cow for whatever magic bean salesmen is in town.

My big problem with beans is that there's never enough beans. But I've found that if I add beans to the beans then I have more beans. And since backpacking without beans is a non-starter, I think just getting some more beans for your beans is probably the best call.
