Baked Beans II

by

Yield: Serves 8

Here's another baked beans recipe for those who like their food more spicy. This recipe comes from the Lighted Christmas Tree Inn in Marlow, New Hampshire.

Ingredients:

  • 1 quart pea beans
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 3/4 pound salt pork, diced
  • ham bone
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup black molasses
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar

Instructions:

Soak the beans overnight. Next morning, parboil them in fresh water until they are soft, along with the onions, salt pork, garlic, and ham bone. Salt to taste. Put them in the bean pot with real black molasses (some like brown sugar as well), mustard, ginger, and vinegar to add piquancy. Leave in the oven with anything else baking (except cake), covered at first and uncovered for the last hour of cooking. The longer the beans bake, the better they are. They are best the second day's baking. (250 degrees F for 6-8 hours should do it. Add water if necessary.)
