I love homemade baked beans and had to try this recipe because I thought cranberry juice sounded as if it would be an interesting addition. No one could taste the cranberry juice but to me I tasted it but maybe that was because I made the recipe. The recipe is good but it took me longer than 3 hours to bake, maybe 3 1/2 - 4 hours.

This was quite good. I used center-cut bacon instead of salt pork.
