Baked Beans

Baked Beans [1]Serves 4-6

Free of: All top allergens, except optional mustard and gluten-free.



  1. Cover beans with 2 inches (5 cm) cold water and soak overnight.
  2. Strain and rinse beans. Discard soak water.
  3. Place beans in a large, heavy pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until beans are just tender, approximately 45 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour into pot, combine well, cover and place just above a coal-rich open fire.
  5. Cook slowly for 3-4 hours. A very low heat is needed to provide a gentle simmer.

Note: You can also make these delicious beans in a heavy, covered casserole dish in the oven. Bake at 300°F for about 2.5 hours.
