Grandma Brown's Beans image

Grandma Brown's canned baked beans are available in the northeast USA but not common elsewhere. They are very simple with only 6 ingredients named on the can. This is a process to recreate them faithfully. Note that these beans are not tomato based, they are thick not saucy, and they are only mildly sweet. The final product either from the can or from the recipe is easily modified to your taste by adding bacon, tomato ketchup, brown sugar, spices. But they are great the way they are. They taste like beans!

Boston Baked Beans image

A wonderful old-fashioned baked bean flavor. This recipe has served by family for 29 years and originally came from my mother-in-law. It tastes great served with fresh cornbread or biscuits and honey. Although you need to allow time for soaking and simmering the beans, this recipe is still quite easy.

2 cups navy beans

1 onion, finely diced
3 tablespoons molasses
2 teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon dry mustard

Kerry's Basic Brown Beans image

I love the brown beans at a local diner, but haven't been able to find the right recipe. I finally decided to experiment on my own and here is the result. Basic, good, healthy, and inexpensive comfort food. Topping with shredded country ham or crumbled bacon really takes these basic pinto beans over the top. Also, easily doubled.

Categories     side-dish

Time 16h30m

Yield 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 pound dried Great Northern beans
1 pound bacon, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 jalapenos, chopped
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
Vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons kosher salt


  • Heat oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Soak beans in a plastic container overnight in just enough cold water to submerge them completely.
  • Place a cast iron Dutch oven over medium heat and stir in the bacon, onion, and jalapenos until enough fat has rendered from the bacon to soften the onions, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, dark brown sugar, and molasses.
  • Drain the beans and reserve the soaking liquid. Add the drained beans to the Dutch oven. Place the soaking liquid in a measuring cup and add enough vegetable broth to equal 4 cups of liquid. Add the liquid to the Dutch oven and bring to a boil over high heat. Add in cayenne, black pepper and salt. Give them a stir and cover with the lid. Place the Dutch oven in the oven for 6 to 8 hours, or until the beans are tender.

Time 3h10m

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 pound dry pinto beans
8 cups water
1 large, meaty ham hock
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste


  • Place the beans and water in a large stockpot. Add the ham hock, onion and garlic. Season with chili powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Cover, and remove from heat. Let stand for one hour.
  • Return the pot to the heat, and bring to a boil once again. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for at least 3 hours to blend flavors. The longer you simmer, the thicker the broth will become. I like to cook mine for about 6 hours.
  • Remove the ham hock from the broth, and let cool. Remove the meat from the bone, and return the meat to the stockpot, discarding the bone. Adjust seasonings to taste.

Swedish Brown Beans image

I belong to a food buying club served by Ozark Co-operative Warehouse. They often run specials on unusual (to Americans) cheeses, rices, beans, etc. Recently I bought a #5 sack of Swedish Brown Beans, but when a searched Recipezaar -- nothing! However I did find this recipe on SOAR: The Searchable Online Archive of Recipes and tried it that night. It made a delicious creamy dish - a little sweeter than most main-dish bean recipes, but very delicious. You can cut down on prep time by bringing the beans to a boil for 10 minutes, then covering. Remove from heat and let sit for an hour. This takes the place of soaking overnight. Make sure your beans are tender before you add salt. (Salt tends to toughen the beans.) Serve with a hearty bread.

  • If the liquid is not thickened, turn up the heat for 10 minutes, or until the liquid is reduced.
  • Remove the cinnamon stick.
  • Serve hot.
