Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Maple Baked Beans

This recipe came from a cookbook called Fresh Vegetarian Slow Cooker , which I highly recommend. So nice to have tasty baked beans without pork! ( I think I doubled this recipe from the original..not sure....I do that. :-) )This is a very slow recipe...but worth the wait!

2-3 lbs of dry white or pinto beans
2-3 large onions, chopped small
4-6 garlic cloves
4 bay leaves

  • Presoak your beans over night in water - 6 hours + (I usually double my water over my beans.)**
  • Drain soaked beans and put them back in the crock. Add the above ingredients ans enough water to cover (about 1" over). Cook on High 8-12 hours
  • Drain this water, remove bay leaf and put back in the crock. Add the following ingredients:

  • 1C (real!) Maple Syrup
    2tsp dr. mustard powder
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1/2C tomato paste mixed with 2 1/2C water
    Cook on low an additional 6-8 hours.

    ** If you forget to soak your beans (or don't want to take that extra time) you can put beans on the stove in water and boil them for 2 minutes, than cover and remove from the heat and let sit for an hour. Then proceed with the recipe.
I like to serve beans with cornbread, sourdough or (organic) beef hotdogs.

SO trying this one! Ive been looking for a good baked bean recipe as my 3 year old LOVES baked beans. Aussie baked beans dont contain any pork products or flavours but they do have other artificial colours in them and we are trying to steer clear of anything artificial. I honestly hadnt thought of using the slow cooker! LUV DONNA
