This is a recipe from Ball Blue Book. A canning book I use a lot! Prep time is for soaking beans!

These were very good and exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for a recipe that would taste similar to canned pork and beans. Being a vegetarian, I left out the pork. It is near impossible to find canned beans in tomato sauce without pork. These were delicious and a recipe I will use often. Thanks, TheresaP.
