Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Quantity: An average of 5 pounds of beans is neeed per canner load of 7 quarts; an average of 3-1/4 pounds is needed per canner load of 9 pints--an average of 3/4 pounds per quart.

    Quality: Select mature, dry seeds. Sort out and discard discolored seeds.

    Procedure: Sort and wash dry beans. Add 3 cups of water for each cup of dried beans or peas. Boil 2 minutes, remove from heat and soak 1 hour and drain. Heat to boiling in fresh water, and save liquid for making sauce. Make your choice of the following sauces:

    Tomato Sauce--Mix 1 quart tomato juice, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon chopped onion, and 1/4 teaspoon each of ground cloves, allspice, mace, and cayenne pepper. Heat to boiling. Add 3 quarts cooking liquid from beans and bring back to boiling.

    Molasses Sauce--Mix 4 cups water or cooking liquid from beans, 3 tablespoons dark molasses, 1 tablespoon vinegar, 2 teaspoons salt, and 3/4 teaspoon powdered dry mustard. Heat to boiling.

    Place seven 3/4-inch pieces of pork, ham or bacon in an earthenware crock, a large casserole, or a pan. Add beans and enough molasses sauce to cover beans. Cover and bake 4 to 5 hours at 350° F. Add water as needed--about every hour. Fill jars, leaving 1-inch headspace.

    Adjust lids and process according to the recommendations in Table 1 or Table 2 depending on the method of canning used.
