If you use dried kidney beans rather than canned they should not be cooked from raw in a slow cooker, because if they’re under-cooked they contain a toxic protein that can make you sick. Make sure you soak them overnight first, then boil them for 10 minutes and simmer for a further 40 minutes before adding them to the slow cooker.
