    Irmgard's Note:

    These are the best baked beans I've ever eaten! It is one of those meals that make you look forward to winter. I use crushed tomatoes to make them, but if you can't get crushed tomatoes in a can, use whole or diced tomatoes and mash them before adding them to the recipe. This recipe comes from Canadian Living magazine.

      Very unhappy with this recipe. I know good things take time and this did take time. I did not cut any corners with ingredients, prep, or cooking. To much tomato taste. I was very hesitant to put any tomatoes into it, because it did just what I thought it would do. The tomato flavor just took over this dish. Sorry, but this was not for my taste.

      Yes, these are excellent! I was feeling very nostalgic for my grandmother's baked beans, so wanted a basic, from scratch recipe. This is no quick-fix, but once it's made, you have lots of delicious beans to enjoy. Thank you, Irmgard.
