I slow cooked a batch of Boston Baked beans yesterday.  Per the recipe, it said enjoy the next day.  Mmmm they sure hit the spot on a drizzly cold day in February.

I was just thinking the same thing.  Looks like you better spill the beans.  Well, at least spill the recipe.

Recipe??

 

:wave:  :wave:

 

Okay, sorry I didn't put it in before.  This one was easy.  Soak a pound of navy beans over night.  Drain them.

 

It called for salt pork, I substituted bacon  

 

Place a 1/4 pound of the bacon on bottom of slow cooker.

Layer in 1/2 the beans, a medium onion chopped for the next layer, the rest of the beans and another 1/4 pound of bacon.

 

Mix 1/3 cup of brown sugar

      1/3 cup of molasses

      4 Tablespoons dijon mustard

      1/8 of a Teaspoon ground cloves

      into three cups of HOT water

 

Pour mixture over the beans in the slow cooker and place on low for 8 or so hours. 

 

I got this recipe from the internet.  It warned to check to see if you needed to add water.  I did not have to.   After 8 hrs on low, I gave them an hour on high and then another hour on low.  I skimmed off as much fat as possible and let them sit overnight in the slow cooker.  Today, a little salt to taste and they were great.  On the second tasting and salting I added just a touch of maple syrup and they were awesome.

Were the beans soft?

 

Everytime I make them the beans are hard.

Yes, the beans were soft.  I tested them at the eight hour mark and they were not as soft as I wanted.  I gave them more time.  They needed to sit overnight too.  The thin watery juice thickened pretty nicely.  It took a couple days to get to this stage, but it was super simple.

Is this the new recipe exchange forum? This looks well worth the effort. Thanks for sharing. I think it was Bart Simpson that coined the phrase "Smell ya later" :smilewink:

PS; I like bacon ends for this type of thing.

Dick, I'm not cooking today, but going to my parents today for dinner.  Yesterday I made pumpkin soup and salad.  Oh, and oatmeal butterscotch cookies.
