Forgot to soak Aduki beans but only have an hour

I have forgotten to soak some Aduki beans overnight for a lamb shank recipe.

I am having a dinner party tonight and have only just realised.

I only have an hour before I put the lamb shanks on - is there anything I can do or should I just leave them out?

Buy some in a can?

Soaking Beans

Hello Amanda.

Queen of Puddings is right, there’s not much else you can do with so little time. If you do forget and have several hours to spare you can put them in a saucepan, cover with plenty of cold water, bring up to boil, boil for 10 minutes then leave turn the heat off and let them soak for 3 hours.

Best wishes
