Baked Beans

  • 1 quart pea beans
  • 1/3 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsps salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 cup canned tomatoes, or tomato sauce (optional)
Soak the beans overnight. Wash them well. Put them on to cook in enough boiling water to cover, to which the baking soda has been added. When the skins are loosened, drain them. Place them in a bean pot with the remaining ingredients. Barely cover with boiling water. Put on the lid. Cook very slowly for about 6 hours in a slow oven, 300°F. If necessary, water may be added during the cookery to keep the beans from becoming dry.

*Any cold, left-over Baked Beans may be made into little flat cakes, rolled in flour and browned on each side in cooking oil, then served with tomato sauce.
