The quest for quick-cooking beans
While people in many parts of the world depend on beans for protein and iron, cooking these nutrient-packed staples takes so long that it can come at considerable costs. In East Africa, for example, people typically cook with charcoal, an expensive fuel, or with wood, which is time consuming to collect. “Exposure to smoke is bad for the lungs, especially in an enclosed space,” adds CSSA member Karen Cichy, who is helping to ease those personal and economic costs by breeding beans that cook faster.
