Since my husband raises hogs and my parents produce maple syrup, this recipe's a natural for me! I usually prepare Maple Baked Beans just for us during the winter. In summer, I'll often make it for family picnics and get-togethers.
GRANDMOTHER often prepared her fresh green beans this way, and we much preferred them to plain buttered beans.
This recipe goes back to before the 1920s and was a favorite dish of our family when I was growing up.
