The flavour of this recipe is excellent. I, like many other reviewers, had never made baked beans from scratch. I'll definitely make this recipe again, including several modifications for our taste.
We found them too sweet, and would recommend adding a little bit of sugar at a time, to taste, or omitting entirely. Also, I added about 4 Tsp. tomato paste in addition to the ketchup, wanting a bit more tomato flavour. That worked nicely and didn't increase the sweetness as ketchup would. I did not add bacon, as I didn't want the smokey flavour and they were great. The food processor worked very well for the onions! Had I fully covered the beans with water I would have found them wet enough. They were just a little dry this time. I don't think they need to be cooked for quite as long. 2 hours was more than enough in my oven at 325.
Thanks Anita for a great recipe!
