I have always wanted to try and make baked beans on my own.
Not the american kind with bacon, the English kind, the one that goes down a treat with a real English breakfast, or any old time of the day on toast or with mash and sausage :)
I found a recipe on the web and decided that I would let the "Cooking" take place in the canner.
So what I did was to soak the beans overnight, and the next day prepared the sauce, drained the beans and mixed them with the sauce, filled up my jars and pressure canned for 65 minutes (I used 500ml jars).
Here is the recipe I tweaked (I can't remember where I found this recipe as I had so many of them on hand, I do apologize)
500g Haricot beans (soaked overnight)
4 tins tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
4 Tbsp Worcester sauce
2 tsp Tabasco sauce
some mixed dried herbs
Fry onion and garlic until soft.
Add tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients and allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Drain beans and add to the tomato mixture.
Fill into 500 ml jars (this portion made 6 x 500ml jars for me)
Leave 2-3cm headspace
Pressure can for 65 minutes.
Here is a quick video to show you how they look as soon as they come out of the canner:
I will be tasting them this weekend and will let you know how they turned out :)
