Baked Beans From Scratch
*Updated* 
I've been meaning to redo the pictures for Baked Beans From Scratch for the last 3 years but it never seemed to work out whenever  I made them, so this last weekend Colt snapped a photo before they were devoured. 

If you've never made Baked Beans they are super easy to make and worth the effort, the flavors are amazing, and so much better then anything you might find in a can! 

Absolutely perfect for your next barbecue!

I made these for Mothers Day to bring to a friends house. With Memorial Day fast approaching  and then Fourth Of July I thought you might need a side dish for your weekend BBQ's..These will defiantly be on our menu.

A little sweet and a little tangy with a nice smokey bacon flavor. Oh and did I mention other then cooking time they are definitely easy to make!

In a large pot add 5 slices Diced Bacon, 1/2 whole Diced Large Onion and 2 cloves Minced Garlic. Saute until bacon is starting to brown and onion is caramelized. This is a really important step as the caramelized onions add a lot of flavor to the Baked Beans.

Add 1 pound Cooked Great Northern Beans, 3 cups Water or Broth, 1 cup Ketchup, 1/3 cup Brown Sugar, 2 tablespoons Molasses, 1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika, 1/2 teaspoon Dijon Mustard,  1/2 teaspoon Salt and 1/2 teaspoon Granulated Garlic. 

Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low. Stir as needed.

Cook for 3-4 hours until beans are thickened. Alternatively everything can go into a crock-pot once bacon and onions are browned and cooked on low for 6-8 hours. 

By far my all time favorite Baked Beans From Scratch! I know your family will love them as much as we do!

  2. I just had baked beans from a can for dinner...and now I feel ashamed (only sort of). These beans look delish, I so need to try them for myself!

  5. If you make in the crock pot, do you still pre-cook the beans?

    1. Hi Shawn, I do usually pre-cook the beans just to make sure I don't run into hard beans at the end. I have done it without pre-cooking but the water content will need to be increased to account for the water the beans will absorb. Thanks, Serena

  9. To clarify, I don’t know what precooking the beans mean. if you pre cook the beans does it mean you are following step 2 then step 3 for a total of 10-12 hours cooking time? I would prefer to just use the crock pot, so how much water should I add on top of the recipe amount? Thanks!

    1. I like to cook the beans until they start to turn tender on the stove top in water prior to steps 2 and 3 to guarantee the beans will be tender but a little firmer then canned beans before adding them. Sometimes the store sells older beans and they will stay hard and never become soft so precooking prevents this scenario of preparing the beans to only find out the beans were old and won't soften. Since you are using the crock pot I would stir it a few times and just keep an eye out for if more water or broth is needed when you stir. Thanks, Serena

  10. Oh and also! Do I stir at all if I’m cooking entirely in the crock pot or do I leave it closed? Just wanna make sure I have perfectly cooked beans :)
