Boston Baked Beans, new wrinkles

leave a comment »

The last batch was so good that I’m going to have to make them again, soon. New wrinkles:

Instead of 1/3 c blackstrap molasses and 1/3 c brown sugar, I’m going with 2/3 c blackstrap molasses.

I’m adding a tablespoon of Penzey’s Ham Soup Base to the liquid.

I’m adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder to the liquid.

I’ll continue with the ham shank and 2 pork hocks method in lieu of bacon.

I’m going to time it so that the beans cook overnight and then rest during the day, reheated for dinner. They are so much better when they age a bit.
