Homemade baked beans. Our stock pile of White Northern beans was getting out of hand so I made a 2 large pots of baked beans.
I also made homemade cornmeal muffins.
In my bake beans I use ham hocks and bacon.
Should I run to the store and buy a meat or some thing else? I have carrot sticks that I could add as a side if need be. We eat all veggies raw other then beans. DH likes eating just beans and corn bread.
1lb Beans this time I used White Northern beans
1/2tsp Brown sugar
1 tbls Molasses
1 tbls Dry Mustard
1 lb of thick lean bacon
Soak beans over night. Next morning boil the beans and ham hock til tender. Pull the bone out. Do not drain the beans. Cut bacon 1/4in pieces. Mix in the brown sugar, molasses, bacon pieces, and dry mustard.
Pour everything into dutch oven bake at 200 for 4 hours.
