Homemade Baked Beans
"Skip store-bought cans, because you can't beat the sweet, savory and smoky taste of homemade baked beans with bacon and molasses. The old-fashioned beans cook slowly in the oven for hours, developing a rich, thick sauce. Baked beans from scratch are the perfect side dish for your next cookout or potluck, and a simple lunch or dinner entrée when paired with cornbread or Boston brown bread! Old-fashioned baked beans are small white beans (often navy beans or Great Northern beans) that are baked in a sweet, smoky sauce at a low temperature for a long period of time. The beans soak overnight to soften, simmer on the stovetop until tender, and then finish with the sauce in the oven. Baked beans are a popular side dish at picnics and cookouts throughout the United States (especially on the Fourth of July), and are sometimes served as an affordable main course alongside Boston brown bread (in New England) or cornbread (in the South).
