It’s barbecue season again, but if you live in our house, always. This means baked beans! We love baked beans, and have discovered a few vintage recipe variations via the Record Book. A book filled with great vintage recipes written by my great-grandmother. Here is one of our favorite recipes.
1 package of dry pinto beans or white beans prepare according to direction
1 large onion diced
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups ketchup
5 tablespoons vinegar
5 tablespoons sugar
onion and garlic powder to taste (we use a lot)
Chili powder to taste
1/4 teaspoon of Tabasco or more if desired
bacon uncooked and cut into chunks
Variation: Add canned diced peaches and the juice. Yummy! This adds sweetness!
After the beans have been prepared ( you can also use canned beans, but where is the fun in that?), place them in a bowl. Combine ketchup, vinegar, sugar, Tabasco, all the powders, salt and pepper, and mix until desired taste. Add to the beans and stir in chopped onions. Place in baking dish. Place bacon over the top and then cook low and slow in the oven. I cook at 275-300 for about 2 hours sometimes more.
Enjoy with your favorite meats!
