I have been making baked beans for many years. Some from old family recipes, some from books/mags, some from cooking sites. For this recipe I used fresh beans and tomato sauce. Mixed it all into a bean pot and baked over night! Outstanding!! Thanx for sharing!raf

This is a SUPER recipe! I'd been looking for one where I could do my own baked beans, instead of doctoring up the canned baked beans. This recipe nailed it! My family (8 children) loves it, as well as anyone else that tastes it. It's very flexible as I've used BBQ sauce in place of about 1/4 or more of the ketchup, part spicy brown mustard with the Dijon, and 2 T. dark molasses with 1/3 cup brown sugar or evaporated cane juice crystals in place of the light molasses. Always super!
