We were out camping a bunch of years back and I decided I would make baked beans over the campfire. I picked a recipe out of a camping book. I soaked the beans the first night and spent the whole next day nursing the fire to keep it just ticking over. At the end of the day with great anticipation i dug into the beans. They tasted exactly like Libby's. I was so disappointed. They were quite good but I could have just opened a can.

Thanks Will B i did finish up digging my early dig beets. Sun is shining again and lots of work to do around here.

Haha might have to get one of the moderators to move this to the cooking section.lol. My wife probably couldn't give you the measurements anyway. She cooks kinda like I build bows. Doesn't measure anything just does what looks right. Not afraid to experiment either. She puts chunks of apples, pears and bananas in cake. Calls it something different came. Funny thing is it's always something different everytime. My daughter in law is a good cook to and she's always trying to figure out how my wife is cooking stuff.

Yup DC. Making beans from scratch is time consuming. My mom always did our light red kidney beans. Navy's she usually just got from a can unless she was making bean soup.

My Mom used Kidney beans too. I like them better. I used Navy beans on my camping beans. Mistake.

We usually use  Adobe Mills Anazasi beans for ham and beans, and chili, and recently have been using Bush's Organic Black Beans from the can for the table.  Got both black beans and Anasazi beans in the garden.

Well we've been crazy busy. We did finish harvesting our Navy Beans. Got most of our wheat planted. Spread 500 tons of lime and 400 tons of bio solids on our clover cover crops.
It's raining again so time for a knap with my rainy day bow.

I knapped the point while the glue was drying on the copperheads.
