Recipe for Boston Baked Beans
12 oz. (350 g) haricot beans

1 large onion
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons black treacle
1/4 pint (150 ml) tomato juice (or the liquid from a can of tomatoes)
2 tablespoons tomato puree
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/2 pint (275 ml) unsalted stock
Soak, drain and rinse the beans, then cook them in fresh water
until they are almost tender, and drain them again.

Set the oven to 275 F (140 C), mark 1. Peel and slice the onion.
Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole and fry the onion for about
5 minutes, then add the rest of the ingredients and bring the
mixture up to the boil. Cover the casserole and put it into the
oven; cook for about 4 hours, stirring occasionally

I tried to find out the significance of Baked Beans from Boston. How it got its name. Could not find much so have included above a recipe for Baked Beans.  I wonder what treacle is?  Does not look a recipe I want to tackle!!

go to My Hearts are Crunchy to see more PFF....

I really shouldn't have read this when feeling quite so hungry. It sounds delicious! I believe black treacle translates as molasses.

My mother used to make baked beans from scratch. Usually they have molasses.

I googled treacle: "Treacle is the generic name for any syrup made during the refining of sugar cane and is defined as "uncrystallized syrup produced in refining sugar"." from wikipedia. Lyles golden syrup ought to do!
