I’ve been meaning to make baked beans for ages and finally got around to it. I got the dried beans and soaked them overnight, then started cooking them Sunday morning in my dutch oven and they cooked for about 6-7 hours. They required very little effort. Once the beans are soaked, just add them with a few other ingredients and simmer. They were very tasty and the hint of maple syrup was great.
This recipe is from the Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook and can be found here.
Here they are, ready to eat:
