New England Pork and Beans
This is a great recipe for the famous comfort food and we featured at our Boston Globe Travel Show Cooking Demonstration. We saw many old friends and made some new ones that day!
1# dried yellow eyed beans
3 tsp salt
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup hot water
1 medium onion
4 1/2 # pork shoulder bone in
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
Soak beans in water to ensure beans will stay covered overnight
Preheat oven to 300°
Drain beans, use this liquid to water your plants!
Put in beans a 2 quart sauce pot and cover with water by a half inch and add the baking soda. Bring to a gentle boil for 15 minutes.
Whisk together salt, mustard, pepper, sugar, molasses and very hot water until very smooth.
In a Dutch oven or large baking dish with a tight fitting lid that’s as deep as the pork shoulder, add the whole peeled and cored onion, the butter, the pork, the boiled beans (not drained), more water to ensure the beans are covered by liquid and half the sweet mixture.
Place in oven and leave alone for 4 hours. After the fourth hour open the lid and stir the beans and see if the pork is falling off the bone. If pork is not tender yet check each additional half hour until it is. Once you have reached the melting tender stage drip the other half of the sweet mixture over the surface of the whole dish and put back in oven, uncovered, with the heat turned up to 375° and allow to bake an additional ten minutes until the top layer is glazed and sweet.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for twenty minutes. Serve with your favorite braised greens or tender Brussels sprouts.
Orange Spirit Cranberry Sauce
Tis’ The Season! Homemade cranberry sauce is easy to make, offers a beautiful presentation for your holiday table, and will leave your guests begging for the recipe!
1/2 cup port wine
4 cups whole cranberries (fresh/frozen)
1/4 cup orange liqueur (Grand Marnier)
Stir together sugar, port, and 3/4 cup water in a heavy 3-qt. saucepan until blended. Add cranberries; bring to a boil, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, 8 to 10 minutes or until cranberry skins begin to split. Remove from heat, and let cool 15 minutes.
