Flavors excellent. Not too sweet, orange peel and thyme added nice notes. Four slices bacon was plenty for the top. Almost none of the cooking times were right for us. We used small white navy beans. They were tender done in 45 minutes, not the 60-90 of the recipe. Baked them at temp and time of the recipe. There was too much liquid at end and bacon was flabby. Turned oven to 375 for finishing another 15 min. Think 300 degrees per recipe is too low for last 45 min. Would use 375.
Sounds great but he did not cover and the recipe calls for 1 hour covered and 45 minutes uncovered. Which one????
