    Galley Wench's Note:

    I spent years trying to replicate my mother's pinto beans, but there was always something missing. I finally came across this recipe in a 1955 Texas cookbook and it's got to be where mom (a Texan) got the recipe. Oh, the missing ingredient, maple syrup! Time required includes soaking time for beans.

      Awesome pinto beans. Loved the maple syrup in this. I cut back on the chili powder a little, left out the sugar and added a jalapeno pepper chopped. We loved this. Thanks

      I made this recipe without the sugar or syrup and to my taste this made a perfect pot of beans. They were well cooked and tender without becoming mushy, The ham, and seasonings were just right. I added a bit more water toward the end because I like to crumble the cornbread into the beans and let it soak in the juice. Thanks GW for a very enjoyable dinner.
