"This is a wonderful recipe for baked beans. My son makes his own maple syrup and I use it in this recipe."

"Good recipe. With the brown sugar, maple syrup and apple juice, my husband thought a little sweet for him. Reduced it next time and also eliminated the cinnamon. Better for us that way. Thanks."

"Everyone loved these! I used pancake syrup after I realized I was out of the real thing. Decent substitute but would be better with actual maple syrup. I forgot to soak the beans overnight so I cooked them in my pressure cooker for 15 minutes @ 15 lbs pressure, drained them and continued with the other steps."
