Ham and Beans

How many of you have cooked your ham and beans in the oven? I never had...but after mother-in-law said to try it...I did. Worked great! Didn't seem to have as much mess as the splattering from a pot....but you still have to watch that they don't go dry! They were excellent too...I liked it!

I'd imagine it would be the same sort of process as making 'baked beans'.

Are you talking butter beans in your ham 'n beans?

Yes, in the oven in a cast iron pot is a great way to make beans/ham.

I cook a lot of things in the oven. Chili. Soup. Spaghetti sauce. The oven provides more even heating which helps prevent burning and just seems to work better.

I browned the meat on the stove first, then put in the oven.

Most of the time I start whatever it is on the stove, browning meat, sweating veggies, etc. I get it up to a simmer on the stove, then put into the oven.

Try a bean pot

Have you tried cooking them in a bean pot?

They cook nicely without drying out or spattering if cooked in an enclosed covered bean pot.

See these exmples (note that I just picked this site from Google to give you some good pictures, I have never purchased anything from this site.)

oven in a cast iron pot is a fine wa yto do chili, stews, etc. you do have to keep an eye on things and stir every so often, but not as much as on the stove top.
