We love baked beans since we are striving to stay out of the aisles of the store and keep to the edges I wanted to make baked beans without buying the precanned variety.
I have an abundance of dry beans and one day a few weeks ago I made a batch and we loved them.
Below are pictures of a recent batch we made for a cookout that went along with the homemade mayo I showed you Monday.
For this batch I soaked 2 cups white beans over night. You could add a variety of beans if you wanted I think that would be tasty.
While they cooked I hung laundry on the line, put dirt around the potato plants, watered the garden, played with kitties, and just enjoyed the early morning solitude.
I mixed this up and put it on low for about 5 hours.
This summer I want to make our own ketchup instead of using storebought for our baked beans and BBQ sauce I will let you know how that turns out.
These are very tasty and we love them. Add bacon to it for added flavor or I add ground beef or sausage sometimes for ranch beans.
