Maple Baked Beans


500 g  (1 lb)  dry white pea beans (about 2 cups or 500 mL)

250 ml (1 cup)  Ontario Maple Syrup

125 ml (1/2 cup)  chili sauce

1  small Ontario onion, chopped

10 m l (2 tsp)  salt

5 ml (1 tsp)  dry mustard

3 slices  bacon, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces

500 ml (2 cups)  boiling water


Place beans in large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for two minutes.

Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for one hour. Drain.

In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, chili sauce, chopped onion, salt and mustard. Place half the beans in 2-quart (2 L) casserole, top with diced bacon, then remaining beans.

Cover and bake at 300 F (150 C) for six to seven hours, adding more water as needed to keep beans moist.

*Skip the bacon and make this recipe vegetarian-friendly.
