Maple Beans from Quebec

"This recipe comes from Coup de Pouce. Maple beans are something we have as breakfast from time to time. A little bowl is served with some eggs, bacon, sausages... This is what I like to eat when I go for breakfast in restaurants. Posted for ZWT4 If you use vegetable oil, you'll have to add a little bit of salt."

    YUM! Does taste a lot like our local beans!!! I did make a few changes: used only 1 cup maple syrup (it's SO expensive nowadays) and 1 cup molasses (blackstrap). I used canola oil for the fat & vegetable broth instead of water (so I didn't need to add salt). Finally, I omitted the onion because I only had garlic tomato paste, which I doubled (I also didn't feel like taking out the knife and board, I just threw everything in the pot). Merci Boomette!!!

    well I did quite a few changes to these beans, I did not have to cook mine overnight as I increased the heat, I also added in some fresh garlic and cayenne pepper, used cooked thick-style bacon for the pork fat, thanks for sharing Booms we enjoyed this!

    This turned out great, although I did make a few changes. I soaked the beans overnight, draining the next morning. I put the beans and the rest of the ingredients in a crockpot and cooked on high for about 12 hours. I took it to a church potluck and everyone enjoyed. Thanks France! Made for ZWT4-Canada Crockpot Challenge.
