why the pork? it's just a piece of fat.
Another lonely night for ya Ez? LOL
My granddad used to make REAL Pork and beans. Pinto beans and a Ham bone and ham scraps for flavor. Serious good vittles. A clabber of cold milk and some corn pone or corn bread, MMMMMMMMM!
BUSHES is the best out of a can, but cant beat homeade
Well, without that little piece of fat...they would only be "Beans". It's half the identifying ingredents...!
Fry up some bacon and one onion both diced up.
Add a little liguid smoke
Add brown sugar
Add a little Worchester sauce
I like a bit of Tobasco
I like to heat it up and let it simmer maybe 20 minutes
hehehe! yet you replied just 16 minutes later..LOL
Yes I did! My wife is overseas right now playing GI Jane. And I am playing Mr. Dad, so I am "bored" to death. I wanna go fishing so bad! I think I've seen every episode of SpongeBob and I can't take it anymore LOL
Get ome Bushes then add some ham (smoked if possible) and some maple syrup or karo to suit your taste. Better than any commercial brand but not as good as Homemade.
Bushes RULE! Ruminator's are good too though!
Thanks for the mention Carl!
As store bought goes, Bush's are pretty good, but they don't hold a lick to mine IMHO.
I agree also that beans just aren't the same without some form of pork or bacon. Its one of the four main tastes that you find in a mouthful of mine. There are also a couple of background flavors too, but more than four main ones just confuses the palate.
leeabu....Do you use Bushes beans or do you cook some up and then add your ingredients??....Pete
a few things i like to do/add
i like bushes tangy beans..:S
can you all post some recipes for pork and beans..........trade ya for my wifes bean soup
AMISH BAKED BEANS
Two cans Pork and Beans
1 TSP. Salt
½ TSP. Baking Soda
2 TBSP. Mild Molasses
½ cup Brown Sugar
½ cup Catsup
½ LB. Bacon
1 Onion, Chopped
1. Fry bacon until crisp and then mix with the above ingredients.
(I usually throw in a tablespoon or two of the bacon drippings also.)
2. Bake at 325 Degrees for 1 to 1 ½ hours, (keeping the beans covered with liquid.)
Pineapple baked beans.
Everyone has loved them each time I have made them. I do cut back a little on the pineapple from the recipe.
Got this recipe watching the Food Channel
4 (16 ounce) cans baked beans
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 cup molasses
1 cup barbecue sauce
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 (6 ounce) can French-fried onions, crushed
1 tablespoon hot sauce
2 teaspoons garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all the ingredients, BUT ADD ONLY HALF THE FRENCH FRIED ONIONS (crush the onion in the can before using them).
Pour into a 9x13 sprayed casserole.
Sprinkle with the remaining onions.
The casserole will be very full, so set it on a cookie sheet to save your oven..
Cook for aproximately 1 hour or until it bubbles.
Take the beans and soak them over night. Take the water level down just to 1/2 under water and brown sugar, hony, molayasis, and a little bit of vingar. Place in the bottom of the smoker and then smoke hams for christmas (I do 3 or 4 for thanksgiving and such). After 6 hours of all that dippings in it they are good.
i like kicking up your basic pork n beans with some leftover pulled pork or brisket among other things then put them in a dutch oven and in the smoker for a few hours. mmmmmm.
Bushes is what I would buy, but I use whatever the wife has on hand.
IMHO the only way to make real beans is to use the dried ones. Gotta' let 'em soak in hot salted water overnight and then put 'em on first thing in the morning. Big old smoked ham bone, diced onions, salt, pepper and a few tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce. Cook 'em slow all day over a fire. Need to have a big cast iron skillet to make your corn bread, and a jar of pickled peppers to serve on the side.
Man, now I'm hungry!
