"For my baked beans, I use a can of pork and beans, brown sugar, ketchup and onions," writes Ethel Fleenor of Hamilton, Ohio. "Then I add a heaping tablespoon of sweet pickle relish for a distinctive flavor."
I knew I'd found a winner when I got the idea to simmer beans in cranberry juice. The tartness of the juice is a nice subtle contrast to the sweet brown sugar and molasses in these baked beans. They're wonderful warm or cold.

These hearty beans are a super side dish for a casual meal. The ingredients blend perfectly for a wonderful from-scratch taste. The old-fashioned flavor will have people standing in line for more.
