INGREDIENTS INCLUDED IN KIT:
2 15 oz. cans Omena Organics Navy Beans
8 oz. pkg Pederson's Applewood Organic Smoked Bacon, Organic, Uncured
2 Organic Yellow Onions
1 Pint Organic Maple Syrup
SUGGESTED RECIPE (Requires Preparation) - SERVES 8
- 2 cans Omena Organics navy beans
- 8 slices bacon (diced)
- 2 organic yellow onions (diced)
- 1 cup maple syrup
- Salt (to taste)
- Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Preheat the oven to 325 F. Drain excess water from the beans and place them in an ovenproof casserole dish or dutch oven.
Cook the bacon over medium-high heat in a heavy skillet until limp. Alternatively, you can cook the bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil for 10 to 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Add the bacon to the beans.
Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the rendered bacon fat in the pan. Add the onions and cook over medium-low heat until tender and slightly brown. (If you cooked the bacon in the oven, use a new saute pan with 2 tablespoons of bacon fat.) Add the onion to the beans.
Add the maple syrup to the beans and stir to blend thoroughly.
Season with salt and pepper.
Cover the casserole loosely with foil and bake in the preheated oven 2 to 3 hours. If the beans seem too dry, add up to 1/2 cup water. The beans are done when the liquid is very thick.
