Old-Fashioned Baked Beans
Total TimePrep: 1 hour 50 min. + standing Bake: 3 hours
My additions and substitutions are: salt pork cut in inch pieces (10 ounces) a peel whole white onion, a few squeezes of tomato paste - no ketchup, one jalapeño, and a Granny Smith apple chopped in 1/2 inch pieces. Tastes better the second day too. Use an old ceramic bean pot from a yard sale.
Great beans from scratch ?? Fixed this for family and was by all.
First time I've made this recipe. It's delicious. Based on another review I used 1/2 molasses and 1/2 pure maple syrup. Saving the water is a must -I added at the end of cooking to make more sauce. Will definitely make this again.
Made these beans yesterday. Very good. I put them in the crock pot for the afternoon instead of the oven, and that worked well. I think I would use half the molasses the recipe called for next time I make them, The molasses flavour was strong. Maybe maple syrup would be a good change up. Sure beats the canned beans!!!
11/4/17: Prepared recipe. This was the first time I'd even MADE a baked bean recipe from scratch! This dish is DELICIOUS! My changes: Used the reserved bean liquid as needed and 9 to 11 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled. Everything else was kept as recipe instructed!
