Maybe Steve K could answer me about the difference in Heinz beans in England compared to US since he has had both. From what I read, the beans that Heinz sells in England are not the same Heinz beans they sell in US.

I found something online that answered my question. I did notice that the beans from England are labeled "Heinz Beanz" rather than beans. The 6th or 7th paragraph states that the Heinz Beanz in England are not the same as the US. So I guess even if I find the Heinz beans here they will not be the same as they enjoy in England. My mother was born in US but was of English descent. She used to eat baked bean sandwiches. I thought that was odd, but not after reading about how much the English like them.

I think they would be better for me than the american ones with all the brown sugar and molasses. Sometimes I put the beans in a colandar and rinse the sauce off them. You still get the taste, but not all the sugar in the sauce.

Heinz brings beans back to U.S. - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

To me, Heinz Beans in England taste less sugary and more tomato-y than most American brands (Bush, for example).

And I'm not 100% certain, but I think the Heinz beans that are sold in the US are made in England, even though Heinz is a US-owned company.

EDIT: Wikipedia seems to confirm this.

"For several years they had been available in the US in "British Goods" specialty stores only. Presently, they are available at many US supermarkets and specialty stores. However, they are now imported with a label similar to the older British label but with US spelling and US Nutrition Facts."

That may be the case, but I don't think they are the same recipe as the ones eaten in England. I found Heinz beans for sale by the case at Amazon. Some say "beans" and the others say "beanz (England)". I guess if I really wanted them I could order them from Amazon, but I don't want a whole case because I might not like them. The less sugar would be good for me, but I guess for now I can keep rinsing the sauce off.

Well, it's what you do to them afterwards that's important. Some salt pork, molasses, onion, brown sugar, a touch of mustard and water. Bake for a nice long time and you're done. Boston Baked Beans.

Don't take this as a recipe, just something to whet your appetite.

Yup, navy beans. What I/we used to refer to as pea shooter beans. I suppose I'm the last generation for that. At least the beans are still around.
