“My 93 year young grandmother-in-law finally wrote this recipe out for me. It is a huge family favorite that is a big hit even with those who don't enjoy traditional baked beans. Not real sweet, great with ham, or for a pot luck.”

Directions

  1. In large pot, cover beans with water, about 2 inches above beans.
  2. Bring to a boil and remove from heat after 2 minutes.
  3. Let stand one hour adding enough water to keep beans covered if necessary.
  4. Return beans to the stove on very low heat for 1 hour (do not boil or beans will burst).
  5. Drain and reserve liquid.
  6. Turn beans into a large casserole and add butter, salt, pepper, sugar, onions and one cup of reserved liquid.
  7. Bake uncovered at 300°F for 3 1/2 - 4 hours. Do not stir too much or beans could get mushy.
  8. Add reserved liquid if required to keep beans moist.
