Number of Servings: 8

1 Pound(s) Navy beans, pea beans or

1/2 Pound(s) Salt pork
1 Onion, Cut In 1/2" Dice
4 Garlic cloves, fine chopped
1 Cup(s) Tomato puree
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Teaspoon(s) Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 Cup(s) Dried mustard
1/3 Cup(s) Maple syrup
1/3 Cup(s) MOLASSES
2 Bay leaves
3 Tablespoon(s) Cider vinegar
This recipe, adapted from "Jasper White's Cooking From New
England"(Harper & Row; 1989), may well be the ultimate American baked
bean, justsweet enough from molasses and maple sugar.Pick through beans
and discard off-colored or broken ones. Rinse anddrain beans.Remove
rind from half of salt pork. Cut into 1/2" squares. Cut otherhalf into
3/4- to 1" thick strips to equal 4 or 5 strips, with rindattached. Set
aside.Line bottom of earthenware crock or bean pot with 1/2" squares of
saltpork and onion. Place beans on top.Bring 1 quart water to boil in
saucepan. Add garlic, tomato puree, salt,pepper, mustard, maple sugar,
molasses, bay leaves and vinegar. Simmer 1minute. Mix well and pour
over beans.Score strips of salt pork crosswise, about every inch,
without cuttingthrough. This prevents strips from curling while
cooking. Place stripson top of beans and liquid. Cover pot and bake at
250'F. 5 hours,checking occasionally (first at 2 hours, then every
hour), to be sureliquid is just barely covering beans. Add more water
as needed.After 5 hours, remove cover of bean pot and cook 1 hour more.
Removestrips of salt pork and stir pot before serving. Makes 6-8
servings.From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster collection at
