Recipe from " Foods that made New England Famous" posted by Mrs. L.W. Crossman, No Weymouth, MA ~ she wrote " In northern Maine, where this recipe originated, the huge black iron range glowed all day. When the family gathered for the Saturday night meal the aroma of baked beans and steamed brown bread met their approval. The family and hired man sat down to this meal. They certainly appreciated such a hearty repast.
