Stoneware Bean Pot : There's only one way to make authentic baked beans: slow-baking at a low oven temperature for hours, to ensure the molasses, brown sugar, vinegar, pork and beans intermix in flavor. This traditional stoneware 4 1/2-qt. bean pot with lid is high-fired to a smooth finish, retaining the consistent heat of the oven to allow even cooking without constant stirring, providing smooth release for ease in serving. Accommodates any flavor variations, so if your specialty is New England baked beans, be sure to include the maple syrup and salt pork. Also ideal for slow-simmering soup in the oven. Recipes included. Oven- microwave- and dishwasher-safe.
This pot worked out very well when I recently decided to make a pot of old fashioned Boston Baked beans like my mom on Maine used to make nearly every Saturday when I was growing up. Good slow cooking, easy to clean and sized large enough to accommodate my recipe.
