I need a language lesson here, Bolas. What's treacle? Haricot beans I always thought were green beans? No?

Sounds like a quick and easy recipe. My favorite baked beans made by a friend had oodles of bacon in it. Yuuummmmmy!

Haricot beans are your navy beans I think, treacle is your black molasses I think.

constance, i think you have found the solution. that is what i do as well.

This recipe was given to me by Joseph Pujol.

Okay flame away
I do a recipe like that in a few variations. The most basic is from The Silver Spoon. I have one type I do with pinto beans, garlic, onions, cumin, corriander, brown sugar, worchester, diced tomatos, beer. Then I serve it with grated cheddar on top. Sometimes I splash in a bit of liquid smoke if I am serving it with bbq.

I know a lot of people think that dry beans need to be soaked. Not so. Soaking the beans will only reduce the cooking time of about 15 minutes.

Good point. Ever since I read instructions to quick start my beans by bringing to a boil and letting sit for an hour, I haven't soaked any beans except when trying unsuccessfully to make the great northern beans, and even then I did the boil thing too.

Baby Lima beans and pinto beans cook up as quickly as split peas.

Those who "hate" Lima beans, probably make their judgment on the frozen or canned beans. Fresh cooked with your own seasonings is a whole 'nother bean.
