New Hampshire Baked Beans


  • 2 pounds dry beans
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup Pure NH Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • Salt and pepper as desired
  • 1/2 pound salt pork
  • 2 Tbsp NH Maple Sugar
  • 2 tsp dry mustard


Wash and sort beans, soak overnight in cold water to cover. Par-boil until skins crack when blown upon. Score pork in 1/2-inch squares; do not separate. Fan out and place in bottom of bean pot. Add beans. Mix ingredients in boiling water and pour over beans. Fill with boiling water, cover. Cook slowly for 6 hours, more or less. (Note: with modern-day stoves, old or new beans, you may want to start checking after 3 hours or so.) Bake in 350° oven.
