Homemade Amish Style Baked Beans

Lynn Dine


This is a recipe from "Ohiosamishcountry.com", that I am posting for Susie's World Tour, for the Amish part of the tour. With 4 of July and Labor Day weekend coming up, as well as all the weekend BBQ's, this might be a recipe to include in your summer meal plans. Note: Time for making doesn't include the overnight soaking of the beans.
