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.
