Recipe ingredients and directions:
Boston Baked Beans
1 lb. great northern beans (2 1/2 cups), rinsed & picked over
1 chopped onion
14 oz can stewed tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup molasses
6 sun dried tomatoes (not oil packed), chopped
2 tsp. salt, or to taste
black pepper to taste
In a large bowl, cover beans with cold water; let soak overnight.
(Alternatively, in a large pot, ocver beans with water and bring
to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand
for 1 hour.)
Drain and rinse the beans; place in large pot with cover with fresh
water. Bring to a simmer and cook over low heat until almost
tender, about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat over to 300. Transfer beans and cooking liquid
to a 2 qt. casserole or bean pot. Add onions, stewed tomatoes,
molasses and sun dried tomatoes. Cover and bake for 2-3 hours, or
until the beans are very tender and the sauce has thickened. (add
more water as needed to keep the beans barely covered.) Season
with salt and pepper and serve.
