Nourishing Baked Beans



For years baked beans and I weren’t friends. Sweet beans, who need ’em? My mom never fixed them so I gracefully avoided them at all the barbeques I went to growing up. I equated them with hot dogs; yes, my mama raised me right (that was before the days of organic grass-fed hot dogs). Then one day I was reintroduced to them at a family gathering. I discovered that I actually liked them!

I set out to make my own nourishing version sans cans of pork and beans. Today you can learn how to make them at For the Family!
