Chef John's Boston Baked Beans
January 23, 2017

I didn't like these, unfortunately. I'm from New England, and grew up eating homemade baked beans. The flavor was good, but not what I remember. These were perfectly fine beans, just a touch mealy, but I prefer beans with tomato, Worcestershire sauce, more pronounced molasses and mustard flavors. My mom always taught me to cook beans with a pinch of baking soda and a bay leaf, so those made me smile. As I said, these were good, but just not the Boston baked beans that are served in Boston.
