This recipe is very close in taste to my Grandmothers'. Although she used neither molasas, or corn syrup...That being said, I like the more complex flavor the molasas, adds. I would welcome any sugestions about how to make these in a crock-pot(5qt)...Thanks
This recipe I will give a 5 star. I'm a Swede and the only thing it should have 1/3 cup molasses and no corn syrup. If anyone makes Swedish brown beans they are sweet so don't excpect a pino or navy bean flavor. The other rater probably had no idea of the taste but this is a true recipe.
I bought some brown beans but didn't know what to do with them until I found this recipe (not too many out there for these beans). The flavor of this dish is excellent but way too sweet for my taste. I nicknamed them "dessert beans". I had some left over dry brown beans so I thought I would replace the navy beans for with the brown beans in a standard baked bean recipe. YUK! These are a somewhat tough and meaty bean.
