5/29/12 Review updated now that brown sugar has been quantified, I would continue to use 1 lb of dark brown sugar. DH said these were the best baked beans he had ever had. I used 1 pound of dark brown sugar; the result was sweet, but not cloying. There were no directions for cutting up the bacon, but next time I would probably cut in 2-3-inch lengths. Likewise, I would cut up the onion a bit more. I used canned Roma tomatoes; next time I might add a little more. I will try cooking my next batch in a crockpot to reduce the heat in the kitchen during our record hot weather. I, too, will make a batch to take to a July 4th party. Please advise me when the brown sugar quantity has been updated, so I can update my review. Made for 1-2-3 Hits tag game.
We loved these so much I will make them for our July 4th party
Full of flavor
