These are the beans my French-Canadian mother used to make. She never measured anything making these so I've estimated the amounts. These taste great with fresh bread. A good dish to keep in mind for pot-lucks. You can add pork or weiners to it if you like. Bacon strips on top work well.

  1. Soak beans overnight in water, then boil until tender (not mushy) Note: Soaking is not mandatory but it reduces boiling time.
  2. Drain water and put beans in a large heavy pot or crock.
  3. (5 liter Corningware works well) Add all ingredients together and mix.
  4. Add enough water to cover beans.
  5. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for about 6 hours.
  6. Check beans while they are baking to add water to ensure they do not go dry.
