New England-Style Baked Yellow Eye Beans

New England-Style Baked Yellow Eye Beans

Yellow Eye Beans

Are apparently related to the kidney bean. And they get their name from the way they look.

To me, the color seems to me more orange than yellow, but aside from that, I thought they tasted quite good.

I really liked these and of all the heirloom beans I’ve tried so far. Are you sold on heirloom beans yet?

And I’d definitely say that these have been some of the creamiest.

In fact, these were so good, I went and bought another bag.

And this time around, rather than use bacon, I’m gonna see if this works with liquid smoke!!!???? (it worked for my Vegan split pea soup, so hope it works for this too)

 

UPDATE 3/9/17-

I remade this using Applewood Liquid smoke and started with 1/2 teaspoon and worked my way up to 1.5 teaspoons. You will definitely notice it with 1 teaspoon and if you are sensitive to it, that might be sufficient!

I know this is another barbecue type of recipe and it’s not summer yet, but it’s definitely a comfort food if you ask me.

A nice way to get some more beans in your diet and warm up during these cool winter months.

It goes good with white rice, with eggs, or some freshly toasted bread. Any other ideas?

Have a great week!

  1. Bring the beans and 4 cups of water to a boil in a large oven-safe pot on medium high heat, and then reduce to a simmer. Meanwhile prep the other ingredients.
  2. Heat oven to 250°. Add the chopped onion, cloves, bacon, maple syrup, molasses, dry mustard to the pot. Mix a few times and then cover. Place the pot in the oven and bake for roughly 3 hours and stir occassionally.
  3. After roughly 3 hours, stir in ketchup, vinegar, black pepper and cover. Stir occasionally and bake until the beans are tender and the liquid has reduced and mixture has thickened. (For thicker consistency, you can mash up some of the beans)
  4. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

You can also do this on the stove. If you can't find these in your local market, Amazon has a sampler available.

To make this vegan, omit the bacon and start with 1/2 teaspoon of liquid smoke. Add 1/2 teaspoon more for a stronger taste. For my batch, I used a total of 1.5 teaspoons. You will definitely notice it with 1 teaspoon and if you are sensitive to it, that might be sufficient!

    Sounds great! I love baked beans, but haven’t had it in ages because I tend to stay away from canned foods now. I don’t know why I never thought to make it at home. I should try this one out!
