My Aunt always made the best baked beans. At the family reunion I was the 1st in line to get my fair share. When I was at cooking age,I asked her how she made them. She used her own cooked beans and other ingredients. Well I don't cook my soup beans but use the other ingredients which make them very close to what she made.
