I soaked them over night and then just cooked them in the water they were in and thus didn't rinse them. Should I just throw this batch out? They are grown inside an encasing but I am guessing the plants get sprayed with pesticides. I am guessing residue is on them when they take them out of the encasing.

Or I am not even sure is it grown in an encasing?

Do they get sprayed though? I've seen weevils in bags of peas (including chickpeas) multiple times, and this should be an indicator that they aren't sprayed.

Yes, you should rinse them. You should also change the soaking water every 3 hours to remove the sugars that cause gas.

You won't die from eating this but it may not be your best batch.

Just remove the scum that forms at the top while it's boiling. Much quicker than soaking them for hours. Only thing is you have to be at the stove watching it to make sure it doesn't boil over.

You don't have to, but why wouldn't you?

Rinse them before you soak them.

Rinse them before you soak them, as beans often have some dust residue. Then throw out the water in which they soaked and use fresh water to boil them. Less gas that way.

I soak beans before cooking, but never bother to replace the water. My beans are fine, and I’ve been doing this for decades. I think changing water is needless work.

IMO the best home cooked beans are pressure cooked.

They are so nutritious but take a while to cook. Buying them dry though is much cheaper than canned so you have to go that way.
