Boston-Style Baked Beans

Another old family recipe! This is an excellent one to come home to at the end of a long day.


1 pound dry beans: use navy beans or Jacob’s cattle beans for best results.

1 large onion, peeled

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup dark molasses

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (ALERT: Worcestershire sauce contains anchovies)

1 cup packed brown sugar


Wash beans, then cover with water and soak overnight.

Drain beans, then re-cover in fresh water. Boil for 10 minutes, until skin breaks when gently blown on.

Combine all other ingredients in crock-pot.

Pour beans and water into pot. Stir to mix all ingredients. Cover.

If using crock-pot, cook 9-11 hours on “low.” Uncover the last hour, if desired, to reduce liquid volume.


Goes excellently with sausages and heavy black bread.


Dish, gurl!
