Baked Beans

Gene Galvin – worked for Grandpa when he was in construction and when he had the coal mine. Built a veggie garden for the kids under the trees that Eugene as a boy used to hoe free of weeds for 10¢ an hour. These are great baked beans.

  • 1 quart beans
  • ¾ lbs. salt pork (dried)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/3 c. molasses
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 whole onion

Wash and pick over beans, cover with cold water, soak overnight. In morning cover beans with fresh water and simmer about 30 mins, or until skin cracks when beans are lifted from water. Put alternate layers of beans and pork into a crock. Add seasonings, molasses and brown sugar to cooking H2O (Dissolve seasonings in enough water to cover beans) and add to beans. Add chopped onions, cover and bake about 5 ½ hours. Then uncover and bake until pork is brown. (Not long, 10 or 15 mins.)
