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

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.

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.

What if you dont ave one of those PAWTS?? :) What would you use?

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

They are good in a crockpot, too!

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?

Lee you motivated me to try them from scratch. Question though, are they good the next day cold right from the refrigerator?

Delicious, if you don't mind clumpy.

It's all the pork fat in there, dontchaknow? :brows:

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.
