This is a huge recipe for baked beans. I'm guessing back in the 30's a family probably ate this for a few days. This should be a great recipe, considering the economy right now.
2 lbs dry beans
1 tbsp vinnegar
2 cups Brown Sugar
3/4 cups Molasses
1 tbsp salt
Bacon or ham
Bring beans to a boil. After done slowly add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 3 hrs.
The way I would personally do this recipe is to cook the beans overnight (without soaking them, just rinsing them) then add the other things in the morning. After I mixed everything, I would put it into a few slow cookers and let them simmer while I'm at work. This would be a great recipe for a large party or a school. I wonder how it would work to can this recipe.

I hope no one at the yesterdays family BBQ reads this but, I took one can of each flavor of Bushes Baked Beans, added mustard, sauted onions and small chunks of ham, stired and microwaved till hot.
I got so many complements I even got a kiss on the cheek from one of the quests for making him think of his mother's baked beans. OMG what a hoot. LOL Kerryh
I said to Jim on the way home "Thanks for not giving away my secret recipe.

Thanks everyone. I don't mind sharing these recipes. They're so old, they've been forgotten. My grandma wrote down all the family recipes when she got engaged. I was given them when she died. Most of them are all about canning and making do with what you have, so I thought it would be great to share them.
