“Everybody Loves” Melane’s Sweet Baked Beans
When my parents returned from their trip to Australia, I received a treasure to complement a favorite recipe. An Australian deep dish pot for my baked beans recipe that everyone loves.
Every 4th of July I bring my baked beans to our family picnic and return home with the pot empty! – Melane Larned
3 cups dry Navy Beans soaked for 8 hours; 1 cup Maple Syrup; one half cup ketchup; 1 cup molasses; 1 large onion chopped; one green pepper chopped; one half cup mustard; 1 small package salt pork chopped into small cubes; 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce; one fourth teaspoon garlic powder; one fourth teaspoon rosemary; dash of pepper.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Drain beans and add to a baking bean pot; cover the beans with one cup water; add remaining ingredients and stir.
Cover bean pot and bake for 8 hours.
Look for Mom’s Recipe Box weekly on Fridays as family members add to and celebrate my mother’s collection of recipes – the Cecelia G. Bennett Collection. – JB
