For most part I have always made my Baked Beans from scratch - what I had never done is make them with maple syrup and rum. I only had a 1/4 cup of the rum but it seemed to be just fine. Have made plenty of great recipes from cans as well - but there is something about slow cooked beans from the oven! Made as posted and while very different from any I have made they were very very good.
We loved the flavor in these beans. I was worried about the small amount of brown sugar but with the maple syrup, it was perfect. Takes some time, but so worth it. I forgot to buy rum before leaving town, so I used Seagrams Seven and it worked out great. Cooking times were right on. Thanks susie Made for ZWT4
This is one of the few time I ever baked beans starting with dried beans, & although I might never make them again, the experience was well worth the effort ~ This recipe makes for some GREAT TASTING baked beans! The addition of the maple syrup & rum was, to say the least, a VERY NICE touch! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Canada with the Zaar World Tour 4]
