1/1 Photo of Old Fashioned Baked Beans
Comfort food at its finest! This has been a staple in Nova Scotia homes for generations. Serve with brown bread and butter, and a good cup of tea! Prep time includes soaking the beans overnight.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Soak beans overnight, well covered with cold water.
- 2Pour off soaking water and pick over beans to remove any bad ones, or debris.
- 3Put beans in a pot.
- 4Cover with fresh cold water and add 1 tsp. baking soda.
- 5Bring to a boil and cook until skins of beans crack when you take one out on a spoon and blow on it.
- 6Cut onion in quarters and put in bottom of a bean crock or large casserole.
- 7Add the partially cooked beans.
- 8Put cut up salt pork on top.
- 9(Some people use the salt pork fat. I don't like fat, so I prefer to use the salt pork meat.) Combine brown sugar, molasses, mustard and salt with 1 1/2 cups boiling water.
- 10Pour over the beans.
- 11Add more boiling water, if needed, to come just to the top of the beans.
- 12Also, if needed during baking tme, add more boiling water.
- 13Bake, covered, at 300 degrees F for 6 hours, or until beans are tender.
