Okay, Dina - we'll have you dropping your R's yet! Be warned that some people think this is an acquired taste, but if you put cream or vanilla ice cream on it, I think you'll like it right from the start. Let me know, okay?

This will probably be moved to the dessert forum, but since you're looking here, I'll post here.


New England Indian Pudding

5 cups milk, divided
2/3 cup molasses
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch ginger and nutmeg
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup raisins
1 well-beaten egg

Heat 4 cups of milk and molasses together.

Combine cornmeal, sugar, salt and spices. Gradually stir into hot liquid. Add butter. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens, about 20 minutes. Add raisins and beaten egg.

Pour into greased 1 and a 1/2 quart baking dish. Pour remaining cool milk on the pudding. Do not stir.

Bake at 300 for 3 hours. Serve hot with heavy cream or vanilla ice cream.

Serves 8 - 10.

For baked beans, the recipe given is one very good recipe. But don't limit yourself to just one. In your next batch, sweeten with Maple Syrup and add just a touch of chili powder. Or you can omit the mustard. For meat, you can use bacon, browned breakfast sausage, Itallian Sausage, browned ground beef, sliced hot dogs, cooked corned beef, Ham, ham-hocks, salt pork, cubed fresh pork, venison (trimmed of all fat), bratwurst, ring bolgna, etc.

Try other sweeteners as well. Try adding a pinch of cloves, or cinamon. Baked beans are made in a thousand different ways. You can also make very good baked beans with dried pinto beans, black beans, great white northern beans, etc. Kidney beans and garbanzo beans (chic peas) are not good for baked beans though.

Some people like dry beans with a very rich, dark mollases flavor, while others on the other end of the spectrum prefer very saucy beans swimming in a sweet/tangy sauce flavored by sugar and brown sugar.

The best recipe for baked beans is the one you like best. My favorite depends on my mood when I'm making them. I prefer either the boston baked bean recipe given by Qsis, or a similar recipe that uses maple syrup instead of mollases. I always add about a tsp. of chili powder to my beans, but that is absolutely optional.
