      Friedel, Thank you for posting this recipe. It is the best baked bean recipe I have tried AND I have tried many recipes in the past 6 months. It is well worth the time spent in cooking these beans. I was thinking that the vinegar must help to soften the beans. My family loved them. I am actually eating baked beans on toast for breakfast right now as I type this review. I just couldn't wait to tell you that they turned out fantastic!!! The addition of bacon was so self-indulgent but I ain't complaining. ;-)

      these are the best baked beans I've ever tasted! A little tangy, a little sweet - just plain good. Absolutely worth the time and effort.

      I agree - the best ever! Try cooking them in the crockpot, if you don't want to have your oven on all day. I still simmered for 30 minutes, then cooked in the crockpot, adding a bit more water, on high for 8 hours, then on low for 2. Still a lot of cooking time, but less confining...and still AWESOME! I'll never buy beans again. Thanks for a great recipe! wmg
