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.
