The flavor of these beans is excellent! I was slightly worried about the molasses being too strong, but made as directed & found it was fine. I do think there should be a little more liquid in this recipe. I used the 1 cup of cooking liquid and then added a second cup of water as well. I baked this in an enamel-coated cast iron dutch oven and I don't know if that made it cook hotter, or what, but when I checked the beans after just 3-1/2 hours, the first inch of beans all around the perimeter of the pot were burned black. :( The rest was a little dried out, but flavor-wise they were delicious! The salt pork on top just fell apart, it was so tender, and we heartily ate the beans that we could salvage. :) Thanks for adopting this recipe, Joy! My family is looking forward to another batch real soon! :)
