Baked Beans

I want to use my mother's old bean pot to make some baked beans for Memorial Day. Can anyone point me to a good recipe, not necessarily one that includes molasses? Thank you.

All the baked bean recipes I'm fond of include molasses -- but not just as a flavoring agent. The sugar and calcium contained in the molasses work to keep the beans from falling apart during the long, slow cooking process.

Not sure what you're looking for here, but take a look at my Pear and Bean Bake..no molasses

Thank you, Pat. They look wonderful, and I think I may sub apples for the pears. I just really don't like molasses.

I'm not great with the self plugs, but these don't have molassas (or ketchup!). I really enjoyed them, they are a part of my crazy repetoire of scratch-foods-that-are-better-than-their-canned/boxed-counterparts recipes. http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Maple syrup makes wonderful baked beans of the classic sort: soaked dry beans, an onion, maple syrup, salt, pepper, some dry mustard, a piece of salt pork or even slab bacon.

Thank you. I was thinking about subbing maple syrup.
