A New England Baked Beans Recipe

8-10 servings

 

Ingredients:

8 ounces dried navy or Great Northern beans

4 slices diced bacon, fried crisp, drained

3/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic

3 tablespoons each: tomato paste, dark molasses, packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, salt

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

Method:

Cover beans with 2 inches of water in large saucepan, heat to boiling and boil, uncovered, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 1 hour.

 

Add more water to beans to cover, if necessary. Heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until beans are tender, about 1 1/4 hours. Drain, reserve liquid. Mix beans and remaining ingredients in 1 1/2 quart casserole, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to cover beans. Bake, covered, at 325 degrees, stirring occasionally, 3 hours. Bake, uncovered, until beans are desired consistency, 30 to 60 minutes.
