Yes, I know they are called borlotti, but I am trying to cook some
from 2018, and they are taking hours (several) in a pressure cooker,

getting them to soften any faster?

Nick Maclaren.

Have you tried soaking them overnight in a bowl of water?

I expect that you already know this but it is not advised to add salt
when cooking the beans. You can add it later to taste but not while
cooking as it toughens them up.
