I didn't have any ham hocks and couldn't find them at the store, so I just chopped up bacon and added it to the beans. I also couldn't get maple syrup, so I just used a whole cup of brown sugar and added a bit of maple extract. I soaked the beans overnight, but still had to cook them longer to get them soft. We don't live in the States and you can't get baked beans here, so this was a really nice dish to take to the July 4th cookout and remind all the ex-pats of home! They were so easy, even if I were back in the States, I would make these because they taste so good!
