Boston Baked Beans
Red Sox Complete Sweep, Win World Series For First Time In 86 Years!!!!
In their honor, here is a recipe for Boston Baked Beans. Boston Creme Pie is just too complicated to expect anyone to make. Not that I would expect you to make this either, but I had to do SOMETHING in their honor. Yipee for the Red Sox!
2 pounds white pea beans
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium size onion, copped fine
2 teaspoons dry mustard
4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
8 tablespoons granulated sugar
2/3 cup molasses
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup HOT coffee
3 tablespoons brown sugar
Soak the beans overnight in water.
The next day, preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
Rinse the beans and cover with fresh water and parboil for 10 minutes.
Pour the beans into a strainer and allow to drain. Rinse with cold water.
In a large pot sauté the onions in the oil over medium heat until translucent. Return the beans to the pot along with the rest of the ingredients.
Bake, uncovered for about 5 hours, stirring occasionally. Keep adding water as necessary to keep the beans moist.
Serves 8 to 10.
