Kauffman’s Baked Beans

A while ago one of our employees developed a baked beans recipe that we liked so much we decided to feature it here. All the ingredients, including spices, are available at Kauffman’s Fruit Farm.

Serves 12 (sides)

  • ¼ c. Kauffman’s Apple Butter

  • ½ c. Kauffman’s BBQ Sauce

  • ½ c. bottled chipotle salsa

  • 8 oz Kauffman’s Apple Cider

  • ¼ c. molasses

  • 1 tsp dried oregano, crushed

  • 1 ½ tsp dry mustard

  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin or chili powder

  • (1) 31 oz can pork and beans in tomato sauce

  • (1) 16 oz can pinto, cannellini, Great Northern, black or butter beans, rinsed and drained

  • (1) 16 oz red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped

  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon crisp-cooked and cut into 1” pieces

Note: all the spices listed are available at Kauffman’s Fruit Farm.
