Baked Beans


Made these for a 4th of July BBQ. Proportions and such came from Bittman's How to Cook Everything and Joy of Cooking (I think). The ingredients were pretty free-form and weren't necessarily ideal -- the apricots were cute and I had a ton, but they are by no means necessary.

Baked Beans framework/proportions
4c dried navy beans, bay leaf, ancho, 2 chipotle
butter, 2 onion, garlic
4t dry mustard, dill, salt
1 c molasses, 14 apricots, soy sauce, red sauce

Soak beans overnight, cook with bay and dried chilies
Saute onion, garlic in an oven-proof pan, add spices and everything else
300 3 hrs covered, uncover 30min more
