Super easy and delicious. After reading the reviews, I also doubled the water and brown sugar. Yummy!
absolutely -- and a great way to serve it -- crockpot after the initial cooking on low!! I doubled the brown sugar and water and left it with the beans.
One of my families favorite recipies.
I tried this last Thanksgiving and loved it. Will definitely be using it again this Thanksgiving.
