Ingredients

  • 1 lb. dried great northern beans
  • 4 to 6 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups ketchup (I like Hunt's)
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. yellow mustard (I like French's)
  • 1 tsp. chili powder

Directions

Place the beans in a large saucepan and cover with salted water by 2 to 3 inches. Soak the beans overnight.

The next day, drain and rinse the beans. Return the beans to the saucepan and cover with fresh water by about 4 inches. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the beans are tender but not bursting open.

While the beans are cooking, mix the ketchup, molasses, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, chili powder together in a large bowl. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon. Drain the bacon on paper towels, crumble it, and set aside. Add the onion and garlic to the bacon drippings and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. The onion should still be a little crunchy.

Drain the beans, reserving 2 cups of the bean water. Pour the beans and bean water into the bowl with the sauce. Add the bacon and onion and stir to combine well. Pour into a 13x9-inch baking dish and bake for 1 hour or until bubbly. Will keep, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.

Baked Beans

I was so very pleased to see that there was a number of baked bean recipes..that is until I clicked on and found only "doctored-up" canned beans. I`d like very much to get recipes for real "baked beans" using raw beans that are soaked then other ingredients added, then baked. Thanks (07/16/2005)

I also was hoping for recipes from scratch. Or even plain cooked canned beans to which you add your own tomato sauce, bacon, and brown sugar (or whatever). I like the canned pork-n-beans fine except for the pork and the sugar. (07/17/2005)

Baked Beans

Go to FoodTV.com - click the links for the recipes on the show "Good Eats" - Alton Brown has a recipe called "The Once and Future Beans" - baked beans, from scratch, cooked in the oven in a cast-iron Dutch oven - they are TO DIE FOR! They can be made in a crockpot, too (I would suggest reducing the liquid a bit or they are a little watery).

Enjoy! (07/20/2005)

Boston Baked Beans

Here's a recipe for baked beans from scratch. This was given to me by a man from Boston after he invited us for supper and served them. I believe they would be good as a crockpot meal, also.

Serves 6.

  • 1 pound navy or pea beans
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Discard any discolored beans. In a large bowl, combine the beans with plenty of cold water and soak overnight for 6 to 8 hours.

Drain the beans. In a large pot, combine the beans and enough water to cover them by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to simmer, and cook for 45 minutes or until they are just tender (it may take longer if the beans are old or the soaking time was short). Drain the beans and set aside the cooking liquid.

Set the oven at 325 degrees F. In a bean pot or deep casserole with a lid, combine the beans, onion, mustard, dark and light brown sugars, molasses, and salt. Add enough of the cooking liquid to just cover the beans. Stir to blend them.

Bring the liquid to a boil on top of the stove, then transfer to the oven and bake for 2 hours, checking every 30 minutes to make sure the beans don't dry. Add more cooking liquid if necessary.

P>When the beans are tender, uncover the pot and cook for 20 to 30 minutes more to make a slightly crusty top.
