    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    Baked beans in Maine is an every Saturday night tradition. We have them along with potato salad or cole slaw, and hotdogs of some kind. We always have cornbread or biscuits, too. It is the best supper of the week for us. I have had this every week since I was a little girl--many, many years. I love them as much today as I did when I was little. This recipe uses four kinds of beans, but it can be made with just one kind if you choose and will be as good as if you used four. Until last year, I always did the proper thing and baked them in my brown bean pot in the oven (I have five pots--all sizes). This past year I tried the crockpot and it worked fine. I always make a double batch. You can freeze them. My husband likes beans and toast for breakfast on Sunday morning. It's all tradition, I guess. NOTE: If you are a vegetarian--omit the salt port and put a big chunk of butter in the pot.

      Well I have been cooking beans all day, the smell of beans cooking was great, we couldn't wait to dive in. we just got done supper and what great beans, the sauce was nice and thick and plenty of. The flavor was good. I have tried so many others and wasn't happy with, so I was just going to keep trying. Well I have found the right one. This one is a keeper. I cook them in my bean pot in the oven. I did 2 cups of pea beans, I didn't do the minced onions just the whole, and put in all the rest. Very good Thanks
