A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don't like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour; you have to add your own!

Directions for: Maple Baked Beans


2 cup dried navy or white beans, soaked overnight

1 cup maple syrup

4 slices bacon, diced

1 large onion, peeled and diced

1 Tbsp dried ginger

1 Tbsp dried mustard


1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.

2. Place the beans into a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer until beans until tender, about 45 minutes.

3. Drain the beans and place in a 4-quart ovenproof baking dish with a tight fitting lid. Add the maple syrup, bacon, onion, ginger and mustard. Bake until the beans have absorbed all the liquid, and are brown and tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
