Tess' notes for this recipe:
This is an old Ball recipe and it is GOOD! I think it would be very tasty if some of the ketchup was switched out for prepared chili sauce.

Soak beans as usual.

Thank you so much for this recipe. I'm on sodium restriction and can alter this recipe to meet my needs. I even found salt free heinz ketchup, so this is a save for me and now I won't be deprived of one of my favorite picnic foods.

Minus the tomatoe soup and this is the same recipe my mother always made, the best baked beans ever !!!
user gaynel mohler gaynel - Jun 24, 2012
yes I'd have to omit the soup or find salt free.

my mother would make these in a big roasting pan, and there was never any left , we would end up making a meal out of the beans 8]
