If you like Kidney Beans, then this is a recipe not to be missed! Rich in flavor and absolutely delicious! Serve with Boston Brown Bread and you have one fabulous meal! I use my 6 qt. crock pot and there is plenty of room. Preparation time does not include soaking beans overnight. The cooking time is approximate, so check your beans periodically.
- 2 lbs kidney beans, cleaned
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2⁄3 cup molasses
- 6 teaspoons dry mustard
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 large onions, cut in 1/2 or 1 large onion, diced small
- 1⁄4 lb salt pork, cut into 1-inch chunks
- 4 1⁄2 cups water, boiling
- Rinse dry beans in cold water. Place in a lg. bowl, and cover with 2" of cold water. Let soak overnight in refrigerator. Drain, and rinse beans.
- Put beans in a lg. crock pot with the rest of the ingredients. Cook on high 12-14 hours or on low for 24 hrs., or until beans are soft, and juice is thick. Stir occasionally.
- Check water occasionally to make sure there is enough water in the beans, so they don't boil dry.
- If you use a smaller size crock pot cut the recipe in 1/2, and cook until beans are done. I always use my large crock pot, so I'm not sure how long it takes.
I love beans any which way but loose. I have been craving some and saw this recipe posted awhile back and saved it. I am glad I did, because they were really delicious! These were really easy to make, even for a dummie like me that can't cook for beans :) Had along with some weiners and corn bread. Milt
YUM! I had to make a few substitutions, including exchanging Chorizo for the salt pork. And, on advice from a professional chef friend I exchanged a small (pony) Corona for some of the water. The wonderful aroma has been killing me all day, just tasted them (twice, but strictly for quality assurance purposes) and they are the best ever!!!!! I made a half batch, which may account for them being done only 8 1/2 hours into the process. Definitely on the repeat list.
These beans were super dooper tasty! I'm not sure about the recommended cook time, however. In my crockpot, the beans were beginning to burn at 10 hours (on low) - I can't imagine cooking them for the full 24 hours. I'd like to try these in the solar oven next time!
