Do you like baked beans? We do and now it's that time of the year again for comfort food - baked beans, casseroles - it all tastes so good when there's a chill in the air and feels so good going down! I don't make beans that often but when I do, it has to be yellow eye beans, they're the best! I used to bring them home from Prince Edward Island as we couldn't get them here in Ontario, I still do bring a few cans of yellow eye beans back for emergency meals but now we can get the bulk beans at Bulk Barn. I wrote away to the company that cans the beans a few years ago and they told me they were not available in Ontario because they were a "Maritime bean" - I never knew that!!
This is what has been stuck in one of my recipe books for years...
That's the recipe I use, (click on it to make it big) I make no changes and this is how they look... I find that with the more modern ovens, you don't have to cook them for 6-8 hours, maybe half of that.
They're so good with a nice brown bread and of course, they taste even better because they were made in Pyrex and look pretty nice in charcoal snowflake - don't you think?
