ingredients

directions

  • Soak Beans overnight, with plenty of water above the beans. They soak it up!
  • In the morning, drain the beans, cover with water, add 1 tsp salt and cook until slightly tender -- 20-30 minutes. However, you must watch these babies, because they have a big tendency to boil over!Just bring them to a boil (watching them), then lower the heat --- and still watch them!
  • After the beans are cooked, drain again and rinse them under hot water, and place them in a lightly sprayed or greased (oleo) casserole dish.
  • Dab Butter over beans; mix "lightly"! or they get squishy.
  • Stir in Molasses.
  • Finally, pour in sour cream and mix "tenderly".
  • Bake at 350 for one hour. (again, keep an eye on them, I don't think I usually bake them for and entire hour).

    I had a few reservations but this is a stone cold winner. We served it with aBone in pork roast and a greek salad. Great paring. It is super easy and very different. Serve it with just about anything and get ready for happy family and guests. A real find!!!!!!
