Pork and Beans (Baked)


  • 2 quarts of white beans
  • 1 piece of salt pork
  • 1 tablespoonful of molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoonful of soda


Take white beans, pick them over the night before, put to soak in cold water; in the morning put them in fresh water and let them scald, then turn off the water and put on more, hot; put to cook with them a piece of salt pork, gashed, as much as would make five or six slices; boil slowly till soft (not mashed), then add molasses, soda, stir in well, put in a deep pan, and bake one hour and a half. If you do not like to use pork, salt the beans when boiling, and add a lump of butter when preparing them for the oven.
