Bonnie Stern in the article below from The Regina Leader Post on Saturday, May 24, 1980 writes that Canadian Food is something French Canadian.
Using the Quebec Baked Bean recipe in the above article, with some modifications, we baked great northern white bean casserole at 275 degrees for over 8 hours.
Maple Syrup from Quebec, Crosby's Molasses from New Brunswick, Manitoba Organic Hot red chilies from our family farm! And a Can of Guinness!
Recipe: beans, pound of bacon, molasses, maple syrup , can of beer, onion left whole, seasonings with pepper, cloves, dry mustard, bay leaves!
The recipe called for leaving the onion whole, but with baking, the onion fall apart and would have looked much better diced.
The smell of this dish baking most of the day was most mouth watering! The results were a thick dark colored baked bean! I had added one hot red chilli, but could have used more heat! I also had doubled the amount of maple syrup and Molasses, but could have used 1/3 of a cup less of sweetness.
Talk about a dark and rich colour
Baked Beans were part of the Sunday meal!
