Maple Baked Beans
Total TimePrep: 40 min. + standing Bake: 2-1/2 hours
Can I use regular white vinegar as a substitute? Or should I go pick up some cider vinegar?
These are a bit time intensive but definitely worth it. Loved the maple flavor. I made it over the Labor Day weekend when I had the time to dedicate to it. Like the other reviewers, I had to let the beans simmer for about 50-60 minutes rather than the 30-40 minutes.
Outstanding! I made this recipe to the letter but had to boil the beans a little longer (closer to 50 minutes). The recipe sounds hard (with all the sorting and boiling) but the finished dish is worth the effort. The maple syrup provides a perfect balance of sweet.
I used canned beans--red kidney, Lima, and light kidney beans, and I cooked them in a crock pot. I use ketchup with no sugar and real maple syrup. There is a small amount of sugar in the barbecue sauce, but overall the beans had very little sugar. This recipe is versatile enough to make the substitutions and still have a very good dish.
I used already cooked beans for the recipe and it still turned out great!
Excellent recipe! When I make it again, I think I will boil the beans for a little longer (closer to 1 hour). Otherwise, the recipe is absolutely delicious just like it is written.
