Boston Pork & Beans

  • 1 quart small white beans
  • Baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 lb salt pork or bacon
Soak the white beans overnight in cold water. The next day, wash and drain. Boil in plenty of cold water with a piece of baking soda the size of a bean. Let it come to a boil and then drain again. Cover with water once more and boil for 15 minutes or until the skin of the beans will crack when taken out and blown upon. Drain the beans once again. Put in an earthen (made of clay) pot and add salt. Cover with hot water.

Scald the salt pork and score the rind across the top, a quarter of an inch apart, to indicate where the slices are to be cut. Place the salt pork in the center of the pot. Put the pot in the oven and bake for 6 hours or longer in a oven heated to 350F at 350 degrees F. Add hot water, as needed, to keep the beans moist. When the meat is crisp and looks cooked, take it out as baking it too long detroys the meat.
