Talk about one healthy and hardy bean the "cranberry bean" is it! This recipe is fantastic and really does convert these cranberry beans into something else. They are very high in fiber and potassium but really (if possible) are best when cooked first in the pressure cooker and then slow cooked in pan or crockpot for several hours with the rest of the ingredients. Bacon, pineapple and other rich flavors & spices really makes this one unique baked bean meal.

This recipe is from Chef Brad, one of my favorite cooks.

How to Make Baked Cranberry Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse off your cranberry beans and sort through them. Soak them in water overnight, rinse & drain or pressure cook them for 45 minutes or until tender.
  2. Gather all the additional ingredients to add to the crock pot with the beans.
  3. Add beans and all ingredients except the onions & bacon. Cook on a medium heat for 3 1/2 hours. Add your sautéed onions and bacon after 1 1/2 hours. Stir beans occasionally.
