My version of baked beans. Leftovers, if any, go into chili. Actually I plan it that way. If making chili I will make up a batch of these then make chili after these have set a couple of days to a week. They make a great bean sandwich too with bologna and mayo.

NH Baked Beans

1# Red Kidney Beans
1 1/2 Qt. Water
1/4# Salt Pork or Bacon
2 med. Onions Sliced
1 TB Dry Mustard
1/2 Cup Molasses
1/4-1/2 tsp Alspice
1/2 Cup Catsup

Put salt pork/bacon on bottom of pot. Top with onion. Add beans. Mix all other ingredients and pour over beans. Cook until done in crock pot or 325* oven in bean pot. Stir once in awhile, not too often.

Gimelli (and a few other sincerely nice but opinionated fellows) will jump your case for suggesting beans in chili!

How long do you soak your beans? I've soaked them overnight only to get rubber beans in the past, and gave up. Perhaps its time to admit that I dont have all the culinary answers and listen to an actual southerner

The million dollar question.

Pre soaking has 2 apparent advantages:

......(rubber beans?what??)

Less cooking time and therefore less energy bill, and if it is summer, less counter to the AC you are paying for.

Less stirring and breakup of beans as outside becomes cooked but the inside is still hard.

I have just boiled non soaked beans and had them turn out fine.

the difference is subtle if any.

One HUGE tip is to re-use the soak water. You MUST use the soak water.

Good points for sure, and points taken, but how much time do you dedicate to your soak?

Odd, I've read to toss the soak water and get fresh. It is supposed to reduce the amount of gas you produce, as well as acting as a final rinse for any dirt.

The soaking usually makes the beans take up a bunch of water, and it helps reduce the cooking time, but you still have to cook them through, which still does take some time, depending on the temperature.

I did about 8 hours on low in the crock pot and still have to turn it up and do high for a couple of hours. Next time I'd try 8 hours on high and see how it goes. My friend's family would just simmer them all day on the stove.

I just added plenty of water (like well over the top of the beans) and let them soak overnight in the fridge.

generally overnight, or about 8 hours.

I like the quick soak of: boil 2 minutes, remove from heat and cover for 2 hours.

Ready to go.

Do NOT throw out the soak water. It leaches lots of nutrients from the beans and if discarded, you get watered down beans.

Homercidal this may be "dead" I feel I should help you find those beans you ate as a child. I'm attaching a pic, let me know if this is the color of bean you are looking for I've read the thread and so far I didn't find where anybody mentioned the ingredient every body locally uses in my part of the south.
