It is a common question – which brands of baked beans are gluten free? Which ones don’t contain meat? Well, if you make your own, the beans will taste better, and you will know for sure what’s in them!
2 Tablespoons oil
1/2-3/4 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans (15.5 ounces each) gluten free Navy Beans
1/2 cup gluten free ketchup
1/2 cup rum (we used light rum)
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses
2 Tablespoons gluten free Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Fry the onion and garlic in the oil until soft. Mix the fried mixture with all the other ingredients in a large bowl – the mixture will be thin and soupy – that’s ok. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish (Corningware casseroles are perfect for this). Do not put a cover on the dish. Bake at 350 for one hour, stirring from time to time. Then turn the heat up to 400 and bake until the sauce has reduced and thickened to the consistency you prefer. Stir frequently during this part of the cooking (every ten minutes) as the sauce can go from thick to stuck-to-the-bottom-of-the-pan in very short order!
These beans are just delicious, and they smell great when they are cooking.
