"This recipe came from a family reunion of mostly Mennonites. It is over 30 years old," Jane Bone shares from Cape Coral, Florida. "You can choose different beans, according to your family's tastes, but keep the pork and beans as a base. I often take a big pot of these to large gatherings or pitch-in-suppers, and everyone enjoys them."
