Maple Baked Beans

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by katew

Taken ages ago from the website ' About ' when looking for recipes using maple syrup - I have not made these but certainly intend to have a go .Preparation time does not include soaking the beans. UPDATE - I have since made this recipe and the flavours are very mild - too mild for me so you might want to be a bit heavy handed - I also added a can of diced tomatoes and cooked them for an extra hour.

The recipe was reduced to 1 pound of beans which were soaked overnight and then cooked in the crock pot with 2 slices of thick cut bacon. Additional warm water was added as the beans cooked. I held off salting until the beans were just tender. About 30 minutes before serving the beans were placed in the oven to develop more of a baked bean texture. They got rave reviews! Made for Aussie Swap.
