That trick with boiling the beans for two minutes and then letting them sit for an hour before boiling them for real, works amazingly well. Much better than overnight soaking. Learned it here.

The only time I ever enjoyed baked beans was when a friend made them. She used fresh beans from her garden and bear as the meat.

I, for one, could eat baked beans at every meal. I did last night.

Even though I've lived in Boston fir more than half my life, I still don't like a really heavy molasses bean.

And don't believe anyone that says not to add salt till the end if cooking. Salt doesn't inhibit softening

I do have an old fashioned bean crock which I could also use so I would appreciate any REAL bean recipes out there...
Take care and have a great day.

If this was addressed, I missed it. If there was tomato or ketchup (anything with tomatoes) in it, that could explain the hard beans. For some reason beans cooked in a slow cooker with tomato often turn out hard.

I hardly measure anything, just taste, but I add onions, brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. I mix it all till it tastes just right to me, brown ground beef, drain and add bean mixture, put all in baking dish, lay strips of bacon over top and bake at 350 degrees. I have always made them like this and EVERYONE asks for the recipe. My daughter in law recently took them to a church dinner and said they were a huge hit! May not sound too good, but I swear, they are delicious, better than any I've had anywhere.

Doesn't 40 litres of sap give 1 litre of syrup?
