    Default Article: Cajun Clark's Fortnight Recipe: Baked Beans

    "From my friend in Maine, a bona fide New England Baked Bean recipe. Cleo claims it's her Daddy's Best. Knowing her she's probably right.

    "But you have to wonder, like...did her Daddy get the recipe from Duke? Or maybe Duke got it from her Daddy? Hmmm.... Regardless of where Daddy acquired his recipe any one with a modicum of sense knows that 'homemade' is the best. So if you have the hungers for baked beans give it a try," Caj.

    Baked Beans
    Daddy's Best New England Style
    2 1/2 cups dry beans
    1 small onion, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    6 tablespoons catsup
    6 tablespoons molasses
    2 ounce piece of salt pork
    1 tablespoon dry mustard

    Soak beans overnight in water. The next day boil beans for 1 hour. (Or follow directions on package which should include a method of preparing beans for use in as little as 1 hour).

    Add salt pork, onions, and all other ingredients. Cover with water and cook in bean pot in the oven for 3 hours at 325ºF.

    Option: Cook in a crock pot on High for 3 hours, or Low for 10 to 12 hours. Add water as needed.

    Next Fortnight we'll take a look at another recipe from da ol' mon Caj's collection. What will it be? Shucks, don't ask, he doesn't even know at this moment!

    Cajun Clark's Fortnight Recipe is published on the 7th and 21st of each month.

    NEVER soak beans !!!!!!! It causes them to ferment and causes ...... well......... GAS !!!!!!!
    Just cook them from raw to finished......

    I have always wanted to try making homemade baked beans. My aunt used to make the best. I wish I had gotten her recipe, but I'm definitely going to try this one.

    Actually Lori, soaking the beans is supposed to break down the "indigestible sugar" responsible for causing gas....

    Thanks for this recipe, I am going to definitely try it. I purchased some beans a couple weeks ago and just hadn't gotten around to finding a good recipe.

    To soak or not to soak...that is the question.

    Thanks for the recipe.
