Baked Beans

sherylt, Aug 18, 7:40am
Anyone got a tried & true recipe? My partner often takes baked beans for his work lunch and the Home Brand ones we normally buy are now disgusting, having recently changed their recipe - nearly doubling the sugar content! Haven't been overly impressed with any of the other cheap brands so I'm looking at making my own, maybe in the slow cooker? Open to any ideas, thanks in advance.

im trying to find the recipe i used. but cant . use navy beans, they are the baked bean, buy dried if you can and cook first - makes them even cheaper. if i find the recipe i shall post it

I got a recipe from an American boat once and the secret was molasses and ketchup.

Usually I cook a kilo of dried white beans (after soaking overnight) in my crock pot and then freeze in small portions.

When we have wwoofers the beans then make lovely soups or salads or "baked beans" :)

Try any of these recipes here and you might find a winner:

I use one from Gordon Ramsay and is really nice. Quick and easy to make if you have prepared the beans earlier. Google for it or if you want it and cant find it ,will post.
