Maple Baked Beans made with real Maple Syrup

Maple Baked Beans Ingredients:

1 pound navy or pea beans

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 cup chopped onion

1 green bell pepper, chopped

1 rib of celery, chopped

2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup tomato puree

2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1.5 teaspoons sale

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 bay leaf

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley



Rinse the beans well and let soak for at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.  Drain, then combine the beans with about 4 quarts fresh hot water in a large pot.  Bring to a boil and reduce the heat.  Simmer, partially covered, just until tender – 1.5-2 hours.  Drain the beans, reserving the cooking water, in a large bowl.

While the beans cook, heat the oil in a large skillet.  Add the onion, pepper, and celery and saute for several minutes, adding the garlic at the end.  Remove from the heat.  Set aside.  Preheat oven to 325 F

Whisk together 1 cup of the reserved cooking water, the maple syrup, tomato puree, molasses, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, bay leaf and parsley in a medium sized bowl.

To the beans, add the sauteed vegetables and maple mixture; mix well.  Pour the beans into a large, shallow casserole and cover tightly.  Bake for 2.5-3.5 hours.  Check periodically to make sure they have enough liquid, adding more of the reserved cooking water, if necessary


Yields about 6 servings

We are proud to have shared our passion of farming and good meat with each of you. Thank you all for your support and love over the years. Dismiss
