My favorite beans are Bush's Boston Style, unless I can have home made.

Carol, growing up my mother made beans every Saturday. I took bean sandwiches to school as did all my friends every Monday. I did the same for my kids. Every Saturday night, beans and fish sticks, hot dogs, hamburgers, whatever I felt like making to go with the beans. My son Spike and I were just talking about my six quart bean pot last night. He asked me if he gets me a new pot, would I make some again. Why not? Isn't that what mothers do? Feed their children their favorite foods.

I know you don't HAVE to have a bean pot, but they just don't taste the same in anything else.

Sounds like you are already full of it.

Just some trivia. Did you know that a number of years back The Massachusetts Legislature passed a law that says you cannot call baked beans, "Boston Baked Beans" unless they are baked in Boston. It was a slow day on Beacon Hill. The lawmakers had nothing to work on that day.

Addie, this is the first I've heard of baked bean sandwiches since my mother passed away. I thought she invented them.

Now you're not the first to say that.


And I'm sure you won't be the last.


Guess you're not interested in my bridge.


I'm still working on the perfect bean recipe. And I'm sure I'll never get there. Beans are something that are wonderful yet just one step away for me.

Canned are great but when I make home made they always need something else to make them what I want.
I'll figure it out one day and I like my home made but canned beans offer something that's hard to beat as far as consistency is concerned.

Carol, my mother was born in the mid 20's. 1920's that is. Just in time for the Depression. Bean sandwiches were the mainstay for children's lunches at that time. She grew up with them, I did and so did my children. Unfortunately, my kids never learned to make baked beans. Even though they all love them as much as I do. For more than 100 years, baked beans have been a New England staple. Mostly served on a Saturday night. I used to have to buy a very large piece of salt pork with large streaks of meat running through it. Then I would have to cut it up into six pieces so everyone in the family could have a piece.

Last night, I took a can of no-name black beans, drained them, and put them in a pot along with some onion, brown sugar, and chili powder. I let them simmer for about twenty minutes. They beat Bush's and VanCamp's beans in every way. Plus, black beans are among the most nutritious beans in the legume family. Had a couple of good hot dogs with them. That's one of the tastiest meals I know. The only way to make it better is to add some diced slab bacon, or smoked hog jowl to the mix, with some pure, grade B maple syrup. Yum.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
