Boston Baked Beans
October 27, 2005

This is a great recipe. I soaked the beans overnight, but skipped the simmering for 2 hrs part and put them straight into the crock pot. On high, it took about 10 hrs for them to get tender and edible, so if you timed it so that they went in the crock pot before work, they'd be ready to go when you got home that evening, eliminating the need to be home for any cooking. I pan fried diced bacon before putting it in the beans, to eliminate some fat. I didn't have dry mustard, and I added some BBQ sauce and smoke flavoring to the mix. It has a great flavor (just like Bush's Baked beans). Just don't be in a big hurry to eat it, the beans definitely take awhile! If you're dying for homeade baked beans, just substitute canned navy beans, and you can skip the soaking and 10 hours of simmering.
