Great flavor and the sauce is easy to make. Could not get canned great northern beans here in Hawaii! So had to do the soak & cook routine, which makes this fairly quick recipe rather a slow
process ~ the result however, was worth the extra time. Frankly, I wouldn't change a thing. The ingredients make a pleasant flavor which was enjoyed by all. Mahalo for this recipe!
Superb!! I did these in a crockpot and took it to a potluck. Very well received. I cut the sugar back to 1 cup and it was more than enough. I also found this a little bit too "liquidy" for a potluck so I thickened it up with a couple cups of fine breadcrumbs. Worked like a charm. Thank you Sue L.
Excellant bean recipe. I also made it for a 50th birtday Luau party. A bit sweet but very tasty and very well received by the party guests. I drained most of the liquid off the beans and only cooked for an additional 15 minutes after removing the foil. I cubed up a ham steak and this worked well.
This was very good and easy to make. It had a very nice sweet flavor. You wouldn't know it had pineapple in it unless you were told. So, don't be afraid to make these, everyone will love them. Thanks for sharing!! I will definitely make them again. Brian
These were a HUGE hit! I made them for my mom's surprise 50th luau birthday party and they were such a huge hit, I couldn't believe all the comments I got on my beans...I must have had a half a dozen people ask me for the recipe. They were a tiny bit sweet for me, but after eating them I made the comment I'd never buy baked beans out of a can ever again. People liked that they were sweet though! They were sooo good! I used 3 recipes to fill a circular crock pot. Baked them ahead of time (using two large 9x13 pans) and then just re-heated them a 2-3 hours on high before the party (or just until they heated through). Just for an idea for large groups, I tripled the recipe which said it feeds 20 servings per recipe. We had about 30-35 people at our party and we only had a medium size bowl left over. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE SUE!!
I have made these beans for years I have a recipe for 100 people for this I make for weddings and potluck always the first thing to go. The only thing i do different is i use 4 cans of beans instead of 3 and i prefer regular white vinegar over the cider vinegar. I constantly have people asking me to make this it is also great to make the batch for 100 right in a large electric roaster. I tend to make it and package them up in jars and give them away because so many people love them so much....
This was good, but I think I was looking for more pineapple taste. I added twice as much and then decreased the sugar (per the other reviews) and that seemed to fix it for us. Thanks for sharing!
Taste was wonderful but NO WAY would this serve 14-20 people as stated. The absolute MOST would be 8 to 10.
Love this dish. Friend has made several times for carry-ins. YUM!
