Way back in 1970, when I was first married, I attempted to fix a recipe very similar to this for my husband. We were living in a rental apartment with an ancient gas stove. I followed the recipe to the letter, did everything it said, and after cooking for an hour, it still wasn't done. The beans (which were frozen, not canned) were still frozen. Not long after that, we bought an oven thermometer and found out the over was 200 degrees off! To this day, that was one of three complete failures at meals. (My husband insists it was only three, although I'm sure it was more than that.) (06/17/2009)
