I know. Ds asked if I could please make them mushy like I used to. I don't know by which method the beans used to come out mushy.

Can someone advise how to make mushy-bean chulent? Like super soft beans?

I soak them overnight but it doesn't seem to do the trick.

I'd rather not. He has enough allergies as is.

My beans used to come out mushy and I don't know what I did differently.

Mushy? Or do you really mean soft?
I soak for 15 hours, drain and rinse. Then cook on low in the crockpot for about 22 hours.
If you want mushy, cook them after soaking and then use them in the cholent.

Use different beans.
Different beans have different levels of mushiness.

I think it has to do with the brand of cholent mix / beans.For example , I have found Gefen to be softer than Mishpacha .

Yes, this could be it. I used to use the packaged beans and recently I started using beans purchased from the bulk bins.

I never sosk more than 12 hours because of the resulting fermentation.

I cook the beans on high from Friday morning until Shabbos and then keep them on warm. I buy any brand including bulk and always have soft beans.

The longer you cook the beans the softer & Mushy they become.

OP, air humidity makes a difference. I live in Israel and tried quite a few times with dried peas. I could have cooked them for a month and they would not come out soft. My mothers dried split peas were way exp date (she lived in another climate, very dry air) I cooked them and they came out perfect.

Hard water makes it much more difficult. Use filtered water when boiling if you can and add 1 pinch baking soda but not more. And of course, always soak before cooking.
