    My Mom made these beans for years. We add cut up Ham and some onions but Mom always used Brown Sugar....These are the only true baked beans.... all those with the tomatoes - you might as well just eat them outa a can from the grocery store... from Jean In Ohio

    I don't think I've ever had beans like this. They were tasty but after making your other baked bean recipe last weekend, there just isn't any comparison. thanks for sharing.

    Too much sugar. Worth making again, but I would cut the sugar by 2/3's. I added some cider vinegar, and increased the baking time to 4-1/2 hours. Good flavor.
