Default Boston Baked Beans

I missed making these last winter, so I wanted to make sure I got them in this year.

Lee



Boston Baked Beans

1 pound (2 cups) dry navy beans
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup molasses
chunk of salt pork, large diced, about 1 inch
1 large onion, large diced

Place dry beans in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and soak beans overnight.

Drain and rinse. Cover again with water, and simmer gently on top of the stove till tender, about a half hour. Drain again. Put in beans in beanpot (or Dutch oven) with the diced onions and salt pork.

Mix the brown sugar, dry mustard, and molasses with two cups of water. Pour over the beans and mix in. Cover the pot and bake at 300* for about 5 hours, adding water if necessary. Stir every hour.

You can do this in a crock pot, too, for about 8 hours on low or 5 hours on high (crockpots vary, so check your manual).

Serve with hot dogs or knockwurst, and toasted brown bread. Or along side hot dogs in buns. Or with fish cakes.

These beans are thick and rich. They freeze very well.

Thanks, guys. First time anyone has ever complimented me on my "pawt" (yes, that IS the correction pronounciation, BT).

Gotta love a cooking forum! LOL!

P.S. Molasses is in the baking aisle, Tom.

They look good. I have one question - about the molasses. Is it the dark you use or does it matter?

Dark molasses, simplicity.

BT and Mav, slicing hot dogs into these beans is acceptable (marginally), but under NO circumstances may you add any sort of chili peppers, chili powder or hot sauce.

It's just not done, my good men.

Just put a batch of these in the oven and will let them bake away for the next 5 hours, while I wrap presents and shovel snow.

Dee, you can use a Dutch Oven or any large covered casserole dish in the oven.

They are good in a crockpot, too!

Lee, I went to a fair this summer and I was able to try bean hole beans. The recipe is close to identical to yours. They were the best I ever had.

Common Ground's Bean Hole Beans

Lots of history.

How cool, Lefty - I would love to taste those beans!

I can't see where that fair is held. Is it in the town of Thorndike?

I might try making these first them take them to the next level of JACK'S Peach BBQ Beans which I've posted here before. I always used Bush's or B&M Baked beans in the past but this builds on those and these sound great too.

Bump.

I made a batch of these today, and went to see if I've already posted them. I had, but I'd deleted the photos from Imageshack so they disapeared from my post.

I posted the photos I took today.

Man, these are good!

Note: I used light brown sugar today and won't do that again. I prefer the dark brown color. But it's all what you are used to.

About those wonderful baked beans that Ian and I made last night - you're really absolutely spot on as to which way we'll prefer to make them the next time. Because we were going to be in and out last night, and got a kind of late start getting them brewing, we decided to do them in the crock pot. Began at 5pm and they were finally done with their 8 hours en-pawt at 1am this morning. That's way too long to wait, believe me....but certainly well worth the wait. One thing we noticed right off was that our beans didn't appear to be as thick and creamy as yours looked in your photos of them. But the taste was incredible! Ian got carried away and wanted to add maple sugar - which he did, and a skosh of maple syrup (I tried to make the man understand that 2/3 of the bottle of maple syrup is NOT a small tad but he got the message when they were not completely cooked down the way he wanted them to be initially. He had some for breakfast this morning (still kind of warm from earlier) and I had a small cup with my poached egg and they were oh, so good! Incidently, I wouldn't let Ian desecrate them with ketchup (he honestly believes that ketchup is a vegetable!) so he sulked a bit about that but I didn't think he'd miss it once he got into the bowl of beans. They stand on their own beautifully. And as many bowls as he put away this morning, I'm sure he was just a real joy to be around at work today. I may have to consign him to the couch tonight before he scares the animals away and gone out of the bedroom.............

Hi, again, Lee...Jus as an add-on, among my husband's somewhat bizzarre food preferences...for exaample, ketchup on simply everything he eats, not just appropriate things like a hot dog or burger. He puts it on beautiful cuts of meat and on our honeymood he almost got to walk home becaue we 'd stopped at a very posh hotel for our midday meal and we ordered prime rib. When the waitress brought our food, bless Ian, he asked for ketchip for his. I wanted to just crawl beneath a lettuce leaf! I did, incidently, threaten his life and have, on several more occasions since we got married, done the same when he's tried to put ketchup on really nice meals I've cooked for him. As well, he just loves peanut butter on waffles and tuna salad made with a little tidge of banana mixed in for good measure. This is the world's very first pregnant man!

Now that is really a funny line and can relate to people strange tastes in food combinations.

Fallon, I'm delighted that you and Ian loved the beans! Thanks for the report!

I do put ketchup on my beans, no maple syrup.

I never heard of anyone putting ketchup on steak until I roomed with two Jewish girls in college - they were both ketchup-on-steak people. I was horrified, but so much of what you love to eat is based on what you were raised on.
