Home Made Baked Beans…
Using a Slow Cooker
Ingredients: (preferably all organic)
2 cups dried bertoli beans.
2 cloves garlic
1 small brown onion
3 ripe tomatoes
1 dash tamari
1/4 teaspoon raw brown sugar
3 tablespoons homemade bone broth (or any type of homemade stock)
1 fresh herb leaf found in fridge? (might be sage but need to double check!)
Rinse & soak beans in spring water overnight.
Drain and rinse the beans then add them to a pot of boiling (unsalted) water and cook for about an hour until they are soft.
meanwhile, slice the skin of the tomatoes in quarters and cover with boiling water for 2 mins. Then peel, chop and puree through a hand held food mill.
Grate the onion and garlic (chop further into a paste)
In the slow cooker, saute onion and garlic in a splash of olive oil until fragrant.
Add the fresh tomato puree along with the tamari, sugar, sage leaf(?), a three finger pinch of sea salt and a few good cracks of pepper.
When beans are ready, add to slow cooker cover and set to ‘slow cook’ for three hours.
Serve with buttery toast and a couple slices of bacon.
