Baked Beans with cinnamon and citrus… Ginger and Bee pollen added too..

Updated on Dec 30, 2013…

1 lb black eye beans, or white Navy beans, maybe Cannellini Beans..

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 medium onion cut in small pieces, plus a piece of shallot cut fine,  for more flavor

4 cloves of garlic cut fine ,   Mix onion, shallot, and garlic together..

8 oz salt pork cut into small pieces or more if you wish. I used 12 oz.    Divide into 2 sections.

2  Tablespoons honey

3/4  cup molasses

2 teaspoons dry mustard

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon I use organic cinnamon..

1/2 teaspoon dried citrus rind I used tangerine rind

12/29 I added  1/2 t Honey Bee Pollen and 2 slices of Crystal Ginger…  
Soak beans overnight in cold water.  Pour beans into a colander pick over and then rinse well.   put beans into a cooking pan, and cover with fresh cold water and 1 tsp. baking soda, bring to a boil and cook until skins of beans crack.  Pour off the water.  Place 1/2 of the onion garlic mixture in the bottom of a bean pot.  Add about 1/2 the beans add 1/2 the salt pork. repeat the process with onion garlic mixture, beans and rest of salt pork.  Add the  honey to the top of the beans. Combine molasses, mustard,  cinnamon, citrus rind,  and 3/4 cup water heat until very hot,  pour  into bean pot.  Cover and bake for 6 hours at 300 degrees F. Check now and then add more liquid if necessary…


I sliced the ginger into small pieces and put the honey, molasses, mustard, cinnamon, dried citrus rind,Honey Bee Pollen with 3/4 cup of water into the large Magic Bullet Container and whipped the mixture for about 1 minute..

Then I poured all of this over the Beans in the pot…  They are delicious…

I used black eye beans the first time and they were delicious. I’m using Navy beans today with the updates.. I’ll update later after we try them… The first batch was a bit wet, and the second batch was a bit dry because I used less water. After I added a bit more water they were delicious.. Third Batch I used Cannellini Beans.. I could not find the tangerine rind so I added  three slices of dried ginger which I put into the Magic Bullet with the water molasses mixture before I heated the mix in the microwave….  This must be the 5th time I’ve  made beans this winter. I made them today with no  onions, we were out, how did that happen??? So I added extra garlic and added  3 T. dried salsa mix…….. Feb 1st 2014 taking them to the Super Bowl Party..  ET
