I also stinks up the cupboard! I have a package of asafoetida (aka "devil's dung") I had to wrap in plastic, put in a ziploc bag, and then store in a bail top jar. Even after all that, you could still smell it.

I think I would rather put up with the bean-induced gastric reactions myself.

Rofl! I haven't had that problem. Mine doesn't smell of much. Not that I need anything added to my beans anyway. I'm Irish, I like burping.
My kids have IBS. Use that or give them peppermint tea after a gassy meal.

Had to google just to see how many people are put off by the smell lol. I'm obviously used to it. I make a lot of curry, love Indian food. On it's own it would be scary but a pinch in a pot of Dal is a must for me.

My daughter has a funny (and somewhat crude) name for it. She calls it a*s-and-feet spice, because it sounds similar to the way the word is pronounced... and because it smells bad.

I'll admit, though, that it smells much better after you fry it in some ghee or oil.

Wow! From beans to other i 2.1 seconds flat. That's faster than a Porsche Spyder Hybrid's zero to 60 mph time!

So what are your baked beans secrets?

Rofl, that's what my brother calls it as well. A little goes a long way. Does add a nice flavour if used sparingly.

Back to baked beans. This recipe does sound wonderful. I make homemade baked beans but never sweet. I make mine savoury with finely chopped carrot, onion, celery, ham hock, stock and parsley. I'll will be trying this as soon as possible.

I got nothin' to add about beans, but I'm glad to see you bop on in, Chief! Glad to hear that your dear DH is improving, even if slowly. Just so long as it's also surely, I bet you'll take all you can get. Continued good thoughts coming your way, and sending up another prayer or two.

beans, brown sugar, chili powder, dried beans, molasses, mustard, onion, pork, recipe

Perfect Baked Beans Hi everyone. It's been a while since I've been on DC due to being very busy, taking care of my wife, work, and Church. So I had to bring to you some bean wisdom, based on fact, and proved in my own kitchen. Here's the skinny on cooking beans from dried to perfect. Oh, and just so's you knows, the more you eat beans, the better your gut adjusts to them. I never suffer from flatulence from eating any kind of beans. I find that to be a good thing. Lately, I've had a powerful desire to eat legumes, especially beans. To that end, I made baked beans, using great northern and navy bean Many are those that state that nothing can be added to the dried beans as they are cooking, or they will not soften. In fact, dried beans are better when the water is salted, as the salt helps keep the beans more firm, though still cooked through. Acid ingredients however, such as tomato, vinegar, onion, etc, will inhibit the softening of the cooking beans. Acidic ingredients can only be added after the beans are cooked until soft. A pressure cooker reduces the cooking time from dry to soft, from 2 to 3 hours, to 45 to 50 minutes. There are so many recipes for making baked beans. They are usually sweetened with brown sugar, molasses, or maple syrup, or some combination of the three. I won't give measurements here, as I don't measure. But my recipe must include the following flavors - brown sugar, molasses, onion, smoke, pork, mustard, and chili powder. The mustard and chili powder are added in just sufficient quantity to alter the flavor of the beans, without being easily tasted. The onion flavor should be pronounced, but not overwhelming. The stars are the brown sugar, molasses, pork, and onion flavors that perfectly compliment the bean flavor. All flavors must accentuate each other, with none taking center stage, that is, the flavors must be balanced. These ingredients, when mastered, will give you exceptional baked beans that people will ask for again and again. Oh, and the pork you use is completely up to you. I've used ham, ham hocks, country style pork ribs, pork chops, pork shoulder, bacon, and side pork. All gave me great pork flavor. And if there is one, I always simmer the bones with the beans. A little bit of smoke from smoked pork products is fabulous. If you are using fresh, unsmoke, uncooked pork, brown it and season with salt before adding it to the beans. Then, add a little liquid smoke flavor, just enough to make it taste great. Liquid smoke, and for that matter smoke, is bitter when over-used. Again, the beans and other ingredients must not get lost. The flavors have to balance each other. With that said, go make yurself a big pot of baked beans. Those that come ready-made in a can, don't even come close to as good.:wink: Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North 3 stars 1 reviews
