      Title: Boston baked beans #2
 Categories: Vegetable
      Yield: 4 Servings
      2 c  Navy beans
    1/2 ts Baking soda
      1 md Yellow onion; peeled &
    1/2 lb Salt pork; cut in 1/4" dice
      3 tb Dark molasses
      1 tb Cider vinegar
      1 ts Dry mustard
    1/4 c  Brown sugar
      1 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Black pepper
    During tough times in the very early days, the colonists in New
  England practically lived on salt pork and beans. The beans were
  brought with them from England and proved to be a wise solution to
  the problems offered by cold New England winters. There are many
  variations on this basic dish, and I suggest that you begin with some
  variations of your own.
    Soak the beans overnight in ample water to cover. Drain the beans
  and cook in ample water with the baking soda. Bring to a boil and
  simmer for 20 minutes. Drain.
    Place 1/3 of the beans in a 2-quart baking pot with a lid. Add 1/3
  of the diced salt pork and 1/3 of the onion. Add another 1/3 of the
  beans and repeat the layers, ending with salt pork on top. Mix the
  remaining ingredients with a cup of hot water and pour over the
  beans. Add enough additional hot water to cover the beans. Place the
  lidded baking pot in a 300 oven for about 4 hours, longer if the
  beans are not tender. Stir only once or twice during the cooking
  process. You will have to add additional water to the beans as they
  cook. Keep them just moist. Don't drown them out!
    Traditionally, this dish was served on Saturday night along with
  brown bread and ham or frankfurters; thus the beans and wieners
  routine. On Sunday you could then have baked beans, brown bread, and
  codfish cakes ... all for breakfast. This tradition began in very
  early days so that the Pilgrim housewife could bake and serve beans
  on Saturday and then again on Sunday morning, thus providing her with
  a meal and no work on the Sabbath.
