Classic New England Baked Beans Recipe Ingredients

1 pound pea beans, navy beans or great northern beans
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/4 cup molasses
1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 pound salt pork, rind scored

Classic New England Baked Beans Recipe Cooking Process

Wash beans and pick over, removing any pebbles or dirt. Place in a large pot. Add cold
water to cover. Soak overnight. Drain. Add fresh water to cover. Bring to a boil; boil
about 1-1/2 hours or until bean skins begin to break but beans are intact. To test, remove a
few beans with a spoon. Blow over them, skins should ruffle. The quick-soak method
can be used, page 14. Turn beans with their liquid into an earthenware pot. Add salt,
mustard, molasses and brown sugar. Press piece of salt pork, rind-side up, into center of
beans so it is even with top of beans. Add enough water to not quite cover beans. Place in
oven and set at 300F (150C). Bake, uncovered, just until beans begin to simmer, 45
minutes to 1 hour. Cover. Bake 8 hours, adding more boiling water occasionally as liquid
evaporates. Remove lid for last 30 minutes so juices will boil down. Don't stir, this would
mash up beans and they should remain whole. Makes 10 to 12 servings Classic New England Baked Beans Recipe.
