      Excellent and easy (we cook in a crockpot. I think next time we may substitute ham hocks or a turkey drumstick for a smokey flavor, but very good as-is. We'll never buy canned baked beans again.

      khah, these are great baked beans. I didn't have tomato paste so I used ketchup instead, plus I ran out of molasses so I used maple syrup for the remainder. I love the very tiny hint of a bite from the cayenne pepper, especially since I had to omit the jalapenos for the benefit of my son. I also really enjoy the smoky taste of the bacon (I used 1/2 lb canadian bacon for a leaner option.)The only thing I'd do differently next time is add only 1 tsp salt as mine came out pretty salty as is. Baked for 8 hours in the oven, with the lid off for the last 2 hours to caramelize and cook the sauce down. Very tasty beans that'll go well with our ribs and potato salad tomorrow. Thanks!
