“This recipe is for good old fashioned Boston Baked Beans. You can use Pea Beans or Navy Beans. You can't be in a hurry when making these. The beans should not be watery at all but on the thick side when finished so be careful how much water you add. Cook time does not include soaking beans overnight. These are great for a Saturday night meal in the Fall and Winter served with hot dogs and home fries. If you really want to make the meal complete then serve it with Boston Brown Bread.”
