How to Make Quebecois Maple Syrup Baked Beans


  1. Place the dried navy beans in a large bowl. Cover with plenty of cold water and soak overnight at room temperature.
  2. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. (150 °C).
  3. In a large saucepan or oven-safe Dutch oven, brown the bacon. Add the onions and garlic. Sauté for about 2 minutes. Add the drained beans and remaining ingredients. Add enough cold water to cover 2 inches (5 cm.) above the beans. Bring to a boil.
  4. Remove from the heat, place in the Dutch oven and bake for about 4 hours, until the beans are tender. Add water, if necessary, during cooking. You want to avoid the beans drying out.
