I feel very fortunate to have the Vintage Family Bean Pot. It has been in our family for at least four generations – it was a gift to my parents on their wedding day. This pot has made endless pots of beans for our family. I love making beans in this pot! The beans just taste better!
It has a worn and rustic patina on the outer surface and is wonderfully seasoned from decades of use. The fragrance filling my kitchen was so inviting that we could hardly wait to dig in.
The recipe that I have the best results with starts with dried beans. Although most of the recipes I have made in the past use navy beans, I prefer a medley of beans.
You can find the recipe for Good Old Fashioned Baked Beans here. I used the convenience of a pantry staple; (canned bean medley) to simplify the recipe and significantly decrease preparation and cooking times with an excellent result. It makes a complete meal served with a hearty whole grain bread. I hope you try this vintage family recipe. Do you have vintage family recipes that you like to share? Tell me about them.
