Boston Baked Beans

Posted on 2011/06/05 12:26:15 (June 2011).

[Sunday 29th May 2011]
Having soaked the beans overnight I got up this morning and immediately started cooking. I love making boston baked beans - it always makes me think of Roald Dahl's George's Marvellous Medicine. Plus of course the Le Creuset pan is perfectly suited to this kind of long, slow cooking. Although I realised I had soaked far too many beans to fit in just that pan, so ended up having to use a second pan.

They were ready in time for lunch. Not sure I was 100% happy with the first batch, but they do tend to improve over time.

Headed out a little after 3:30 for a bit of shopping although I don't recall what, if anything, we bought.

Dinner was, of course, more beans! To make it a bit more interesting I also cooked some Quorn sausages and sautéed some potatoes.
