    Classic recipe

    Boston Baked Great Northern Beans

    These traditional Boston baked beans are flavored with three sweeteners: maple syrup, brown sugar and molasses. This dish can be prepared in advance and reheated, but the beans will thicken with time. Add a little water to the casserole dish while reheating.
