    I can't help you out with pork and beans, but I developed a pretty
    good approximation of Campbell's Bean with Bacon Soup, if you're
    interested. Mine's made with ham.

    hours, or until beans are tender. Add liquid smoke to taste. Remove

    And isn't it simpler just to buy a can of beans once in a while?

    Two arguments against that:

    1. It's hard to really appreciate something unless you've tried to make
    it yourself.

    2. Sometimes when you try something different, you find a new favorite.

    So my wife and I decided to make some baked beans from scratch. I know
    my aunt used to do this. We were discouraged, as the poster was above,
    by the sheer number of recipes that started out:

    2 cans [Brand X] baked beans

    We also talked to a lot of people who "made" their own baked beans, with
    similar instructions. I would ask them why, and they were quite
    surprised. It was just how it was done, open cans of beans, and then
    make them "theirs" by adding stuff. Unfortunately, I don't like a lot
    of sugar, and baked beans have too much sugar for my taste, and these
    "enhancements" almost always involved brown sugar or catsup.

    So my wife and I made baked beans two or three times. I think we took
    them to a potluck once. So now we know, just buy a can of baked beans.

    Haven't had them for years, but I would guess something like this:
    1. Boil some small white beans with a tiny bit of chopped salt pork
    until beans are slightly overcooked. Drain to liquid consistency you
    remember.
    2. Buy the cheapest hot dogs you can find, cut them in half
    lengthwise, then in thin half moons.
    3. Add the hot dogs to the beans along with a large amount of sugar,
    a small bit of salt and pepper, and a healthy glug of ketchup.
    That should take care of the essential ingredients. Adjust amounts to
    taste and if they are still not quite right, stir in some msg. -

    You've just vividly reminded me of why I don't eat pork and beans.
    ROFL! That being said, this will probably make a good approximation
    of the canned ones. They definitely have a lot of ketchup in them.

    I love baked beans! Too bad the rest of my family doesn't. After
    knocking myself out to make baked beans for a huge picnic (by request
    of the host), I finally started thinking about canned beans and how
    mine differed from the various brand names. I took a can of Bush's
    Beans and taste tested mine with theirs. They were identical, so I
    haven't made a small batch of baked beans since. Why bother if all
    you really need is enough for yourself?
