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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place beans in large saucepan and cover with cold water.
  2. Bring to the boil and simmer 2 minutes.

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!

I don't like tomato flavored beans. So when I saw this recipe I knew I would like it. It's not too sweet, just the right touch of sweetness. I used real maple syrup. I used bacon. I omitted the salt. I had to cook the beans longer and after 2 hours, I heated the oven to 400 F. It helped a lot. Thanks Katew :) Made for the Aussie Swap for November 2010

I used canned white beans only because that is what I had on hand so therefore I skipped the first three directions. I also used Aunt Jamimia maple syrup which probably wasn't what the chef had in mind. I also used 2 slices of bacon. Loved the flavor and I will be making this again.
