  1. I still make them from scratch! Delicious!

  2. sounds yummy don’t forget onions and peppers

  3. Yes, we are having delicious baked beans. I also make mine from scratch, using bell pepper, onion, small peice of fatback and brown sugar. I do pick and let my beans sit in water over night.

  4. I am very thankful for the good old canned can I can just add a few touches to.

  5. Were they cooking with soda in the 1880s? What’s the date on this recipe, please?

    1. They’re talking about baking soda I believe, which has been around a long time

    2. Aaron Hanlin, ah…. I guess that’s my “duh” moment for the day. Thanks.

  6. I have made them for decades. I start with dried beans and then follow a recipe of my own. The family loves them.
