Baked Beans in Tomato and Molasses

Baked Bean Ingredients

This traditional recipe, passed down from my grandpa, was usually served when the whole extended family got together for holiday meals.  It’s not terribly complicated and you can throw it together in a couple of minutes, however you must plan a day ahead if you want it to be ready in time for dinner.  The key to perfect beans is to soak them over night which allows them to swell, then boil them for about an hour and a half until perfectly tender.  This recipe is also a hit with the vegetarians in the family since it is high in protein, fiber and not to mention pretty filling too. Other variations include Boston Baked Beans (molasses and salt pork) and French Canadian Fève au lard where they are flavored with maple syrup, lardon or bacon.
