    Default Joh Doh's Ultimate Baked Beans

    Okay, if you guys liked the rib "concept", I'll give you a "side" that does well on its own, let alone with ribs (also great in a thermos for fried shore lunch fish)

    Anyways, here's my "Ultimate Beans, sourced from a Canadian Food Network program a couple years ago, tweaked just a bit to my own taste...

    2 each 10 oz cans of baked beans (personal preference, I like the ones that have kidney beans in there as well)
    6 slices thick side bacon, cut to 1" lengths
    3 tablespoons fresh grated garlic
    1/2 cup maple syrup
    1/3 BBQ sauce (I favour Bulls Eye Hickory or equivalent)
    1/4 cup sharp mustard
    1 yellow onion, diced
    1 rib celery, finely chopped
    a dash of cayenne, or Franks Hot Sauce
    1/4 tsp chili powder
    1/2 sweet bell pepper, diced
    1 cup apple sauce (Alternate:crushed canned pineapple)

    Gently fry bacon until limp, but not crisp. Add garlic and onion (enjoying the smell!) until translucent.
    Add beans, incorporating the goodness of the bacon fat thoroughly.
    Add syrup, BBQ sauce, mustard, cayenne and chili and mix well.

    Last add celery, bell pepper and canned fruit, cooking until the veggies are cooked but still have "crunch"

    These are a great addition to any sort of BBQ/Grilled pork, or even on their own. Allegedly good as "leftovers", if you ever have any...

    Maple syrup and applesauce are a couple ingredients not common in the "lower" areas.
    We make our own applebutter. Now ya got me thinkin'.

    Applesauce is pretty simple to make, but apple butter would be , well, "interesting!"

    The "shortcut" for maple syrup would be brown sugar, but you'd be way off course in where the recipe is designed to go.

    Maybe this is something where we could set up some "trades"?

    Up here, we are "awash" with it' ;12.5 Imperial oz (ie 375 ml) costs me about $8 at the grocery; possible less if I go and buy it direct at a sugaring off site, of which there are several in the immediate vicinity, and it is the "season"...

    Might try trading some home made applebutter for some real maple syrup. We cook 30 gallons each October.
