baked beans Sun, 04/3/05 1:52 PM (permalink)
when i was growing up in syracuse, ny, my friday duty was to go the Peninses' for a slab of fried fish, cole slaw and baked beans.
i have not seen these baked beans anywhere else in my travels.
they were very thick, you ate them cold. the closest i find is mexican refried beans, way to runny. there may have been a hint of maple sugar, hard to remember exactly, been 40 years....
these may have been produced by 'genes' beans'. they were also at most clambakes so they were a big item.

    Sounds similar to the cold baked beans served at Nick Tahoes with the Garbage Plate. Personally, I never cared for cold beans. I like my baked beans hot, or at least very warm.

      I like Bush's baked beans and they are good cold right from the can but that's not my preferred way to eat them.

            Any canned baked beans works for me altough I prefer heinz or bush's they all get "additions" while cooking. Some of the best baked beans come from a local "Q" chain (bono's)it's filled with all the cutting board detrius so you get little bits of chicken, turkey, pork and beef with every bite. When I make them at home I start with baby lima's, rinsed well then soaked and simmered in redwine when almost tender the majority of the fluid is drained off, onions, bbq sauce, garlic, honey, brown sugar and salsa is added, topped with bacon strips then in the oven at 300 for a couple hrs..

              When it comes to store-boughten baked beans my choice is a jar of B&M baked beans.

                Bush beans all the way. Hot or cold but rather hot. You don't have to add anything to them. "Roll that beautiful bean footage"!

                  I'm with Carlton, though we usually use the "with onions" variety. And we doctor them up (if eating hot) with any (or all!) of the following:
                  • mustard, dry or regular;
                  • sauteed onions
                  • maple syrup, sorghum; or (my preference) molasses;
                  • a dab of real butter; and/or
                  • sauteed bacon.

                      Miss Alaska 2005 is just trying to get in my good graces. Since my "non-recipe" is for redneck beans and not baked beans, I'll defer posting it here.

                      HOWEVER, I would LOVE for Mz. Lisa to post HER recipe for baked beans (also her version of Bushie's Beans).

                        Now that's just PLAIN NOT FAIR! Mr. Bushie, you gave me the recipe for those fabulous beans (even though they're not "baked beans") but I think you have a moral obligation to share with the rest of the Roadfooders.

                              Best bean recipe I ever made... Blatantly stolen from the Good Eats website...

                              The Once and Future Beans
                              Recipe courtesy Alton Brown


                              Recipe Summary
                              Prep Time: 30 minutes
                              Cook Time: 8 hours
                              Yield: 6 servings
                              User Rating: 5 Stars


                              1 pound dried Great Northern beans
                              1 pound bacon, chopped
                              1 onion, chopped
                              2 jalapenos, chopped
                              1/4 cup tomato paste
                              1/4 cup dark brown sugar
                              1/4 cup molasses
                              Vegetable broth
                              1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
                              1 teaspoon black pepper
                              2 teaspoons kosher salt

                              Heat oven to 250 degrees F.

                              Soak beans in a plastic container overnight in just enough cold water to submerge them completely.

                              Place a cast iron Dutch oven over medium heat and stir in the bacon, onion, and jalapenos until enough fat has rendered from the bacon to soften the onions, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, dark brown sugar, and molasses.

                              Drain the beans and reserve the soaking liquid. Add the drained beans to the Dutch oven. Place the soaking liquid in a measuring cup and add enough vegetable broth to equal 4 cups of liquid. Add the liquid to the Dutch oven and bring to a boil over high heat. Add in cayenne, black pepper and salt. Give them a stir and cover with the lid. Place the Dutch oven in the oven for 6 to 8 hours, or until the beans are tender.

                                          Ok, Ok, here's my version of Bushie's Beans.


                                          Bushie uses a ham bone but I don't always have one so sometimes I start with diced bacon that I render in a large pot. Soak the pinto beans (2Cups) overnight and rinse. After the bacon is crispy I add a chopped onion and brown lightly. Add the beans, a can of chopped tomatoes, a chopped jalapeno. Add enough water just to cover. NO SALT! WOAH! I learned that in France......salt inhibits the cooking of beans for some crazy reason, but it's true. Stir those beans/bacon/tomatoes around and just let them cook. Don't want them to be "smooshy" nor do you want them to be "crunchy". Add salt towards the end. It's the perfect, simple, delicious way to cook pinto beans.
                                          Your turn, Bushie.
                                          And NO I am not posting any pics of Ms Alaska 2005 until I have a proper tan!

                                            Quick, easy, and everyone scarfs 'em down at picnic or potluck -

                                            Cheap, plain pork and beans (as much as you need)
                                            Doctor up with ketchup, mustard, and minced onion, plus honey or brown sugar to taste.

                                            Add equal portion of thinly sliced kielbasa or smoked sausage (I prefer kielbasa, of course, as it is Polish).

                                            Bake at low heat (300ish) for at least an hour.

                                            Yum.

                                                This is a recipe from Gourmet published in 1946----take it from an old New Englander--it's good!!!

                                                Gourmet'S Boston Baked Beans
                                                Yield: 6 Servings

                                                Ingredients
                                                2 c Dried navy beans, picked over and rinsed
                                                3/4 lb Salt pork
                                                1/2 c Molasses
                                                1/2 ts Dry mustard (English style)
                                                1/4 ts Paprika
                                                1 ts Onion, grated

                                                1. In a bowl, combine the beans with 4 cups cold water and let them soak overnight. Drain, reserving any remaining liquid. Transfer them to a small heavy kettle, and add fresh water to cover. Simmer, covered, for 60 minutes. Drain in a colander, reserving the cooking liquid and combining it with the soaking liquid.

                                                2. To the kettle, add a quarter lb. piece of salt pork and the beans and bury the remaining piece of pork, well scored, in the center of the beans. In a small bowl, stir together the molasses, 1/2 cup of bean liquid, mustard, paprika, and onion. Pour the mixture over the beans and stir in.

                                                3. Bake the beans, covered, in the middle of a preheated 300f oven for 5 hours, stirring in some of the bean liquid at hourly intervals as necessary to keep the beans just barely covered. Remove lid and cook uncovered for 1 more hour.

                                                I use add larger onion chunks and use a clay bean pot that my mom used to use.

                                                try this with them for a killer breakfast!

                                                  Last night the phone call came in from our best friends, "John wanted to make ribs this weekend and we were, um, thinking, um, that you guys could come over and join us." Oh sure! "Well, I was wondering, um, if maybe, if you're not too busy, could you make a pot of those beans??" Bushie is now famous in Alaska........I get invited to dinner for the pot of beans. I will take some pics on Sat. WITH THE BEANS AND THE SMILE and send to Bushie who can post them because not only is he the Champion Bean Cooker (sorry Lone Star), but he knows how to post pictures here!

                                                    I used to love Bush's beans.. then I discovered Van De Camp's baked.. although Heinz's vegetarian beans are excellent for my own doctoring up.. I like to mix in all sorts of things like cheese, garlic, mustard.. whatever.. and simmer those babies till they are fairly thick and mushy.

                                                    As for cold beans.. I don't like too many foods hot... either lukewarm or cold.. We always chilled our pork and beans before serving.. I love cold chili beans..especially in a bean and mayonnaise sandwich.. and my father would eat cold beans in a bowl mixed with mayo and red onion... so the weirdness runs in the family..

                                                      Several new twists here. I'll have to try them. But first, what kind of cheese do you use? And do you heat the beans to melt the cheese, then recool them?

                                                          I sometimes throw cheddar or american cheese into the mix, especially when doctoring up canned beans, add some browned ground beef and serve over bread or rolls and its a one pan meal. Cold baked bean sandwichs are a late night treat but buttered bread works for me. I'm not so sure about the "mayo?" and baked beans thing..
