The bouchon were beyond fabulous and took almost no time (five minutes-tops!) to make. I thought I was making extra to eat for lunch but they were devoured. Yay!

Now onto all those beans…

From the “Diner, Drive-ins and Dives” fan site. I’ve been looking for this recipe ever since we saw this episode. The Husband loves baked beans and put in a request for this recipe. Fingers crossed that they will be tasty-I have them in the slowcooker now.

Soak a pound of navy beans overnight
Drain the water.
In a pot- cover beans with fresh water- Bring them to boil, with a teaspoon of baking soda, and some salt. then let them roll for 12 mins- make sure you add some pork fat.
Remove from stove, take out beans, leave your liquid.
Add 1/3 cup molasses
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tsp.. dry mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
throw in some ketchup for good measure.. not much, just eyeball about 1/4 cup!
and let all ingredients cook until…
alternate in your crock pot or bean pot the following..
sliced onion
smoked pork rind with lots of meat
the beans you set aside.
Then cover in the pot with liquid- cook FIVE hours on 300…
