Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
I read many recipes that required so much sugar and I really was against making something with lots of sugar. I came across this recipe and after reading its ingredients figured I'd give it a try. I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough for all the people coming over for Independence Day. It was about 11am on the day I needed these for 7pm dinner, so I decided to pull out the handy-dandy pressure cooker and cooked my dry beans for 30 min in the pressure cooker (just as good as soaking overnight and cooking them for 2-3 hours until tender, but only takes 40 minutes. Outside of that I also wanted to cut down on the fat content so I diced up my bacon, fried it til crisply, then rinsed the bacon in colander with hot water. Good healthy way to rinse the fats away from cooked meats that are not lean. Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter. It was wonderful. I think next time I will experiment with a bit of fresh garlic (just cause Im not one to adhere to a recipe, and enjoy the "creative" aspects of cooking) - So please feel free to use this recipe, you will not be disappointed, lower in sugar than most recipes, and if you wash your bacon, you also lower the fat content exponentially
