bootlegger beans

I’ve busted out the crock pot again!  Well its just so damn convenient why wouldn’t I?  I mean you turn it on, chuck in whatever’s going to withstand being slow cooked for the next 4-6 hours and at the end of it, arm yourself with a spoon!  That leaves plenty of time to run amok in the wilderness (um that’s what I call the front lawn), go snowboarding AND return in one piece, take a long lazy afternoon walk, or  just contemplate  it…. still counts? Ahhhh the possibilities are endless, it’s a bit like what can go into the crock pot, and since I went a bit mental at the Freshtown last week and bought home a multitude of dried beans, partly because I was thinking of attractive vintage jar collection I have going in the pantry, rather than being really really really into beans. That said….

Bootlegger beans

1 pd white beans (navy, great northern etc)

2 onions chopped

1/4 c molasses (original)

1/4 c brown sugar

3 tbsp tomato paste

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp Gulden’s Spicy Brown mustard, 2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper

2 cups water

Quick soak beans, just follow directions on packet. Rinse add everything to pot, give big stir.  Cook 6 hours.  Eat.  Open some windows…..

If you wanted to add 8 strips bacon cut up and added to the pot, you’re quite welcome to.  It would be a bit mean if I did it but you go right on ahead with your badass meat eatin self.
