    Chef Michael Callahan's Note:

    My Dad's family is from South of Boston, so it should not be surprising that my Grammy made some awesome Boston Baked Beans. Here is my rendition of an old family favorite...

      *Quick Soak Method: place the beans into a cooking pot, cover them with the three times the volume of water and bring them to a boil on the stove. Boil for about two minutes and then leave them sit off heat for an hour -- in either case, drain off the soaking water before proceeding with the recipe.

      One of us thought these a little too sweet, the rest loved them. They did take quite a bit longer to soften and cook than we expected. Nice, rich dark color and a spicy, peppery edge mark them as the Real Deal, and they'd be a great choice for a winter potluck or summer barbecue. Made for Pick A Chef.
