BOSTON BAKED BEANS

Although you need to allow time for soaking and simmering the beans, this recipe is still quite easy.  It tastes great served with fresh cornbread or biscuits and honey.

2     Cups Navy Beans

1/2  lb. Bacon

1     Onion  (finely diced)

3     Tbsp. Molasses

2     tsp. Salt

1/4  tsp. Black Pepper

1/4  tsp. Dry Mustard

1/2  Cup Ketchup

1     Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1/4  Cup Brown Sugar

Soak beans overnight in cold water. Simmer the beans in the same water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve the liquid.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Arrange the beans in a 2 quart bean pot or casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of dish, and layering them with bacon and onion.

In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.

Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry. Servings: 6


CHICKEN SALAD

2     to 3 Cups Cooked Chicken (coarsely chopped)

2     Stalks Celery (chopped)

1/2  Red Bell Pepper (seeded and chopped)

4     to 6 Green Olives (pitted and minced)

1/4  Cup Red Onion (chopped)

1/2  Apple (cored and chopped)

1/3  Head Iceberg Lettuce (sliced and chopped)

Dressing:

5  Tbsp. Mayonnaise

1  Tbsp. Plum Preserves (or any sweet berry preserve or a lesser amount of honey)

2   tsp. Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

     Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Prep all of the salad ingredients and toss them together in a large bowl.

Prepare the dressing in a separate smaller bowl. Mix together the mayonnaise, preserves, and lemon juice. Taste for the proper balance of sweetness and acidity. The salad dressing should not be too sweet nor too sour. Add more preserves or lemon juice until you have reached the balance you want. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Gently stir the dressing in with the chicken salad ingredients. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.

Yield: Serves 4.

BACKYARD CLAM BAKE 

1 lb. Cherrystone Clams 

1 lb. Mussels 

41 lb. Lobsters 

4 Baking Potatoes 

4 Small Onions 

4 Ears of Corn 

1 Bunch Asparagus 

Butter

Make sure the clams and mussels are all alive. The shells should be tightly closed, and if they’re open, they should close when you tap them. If any remain open, discard. 

Build a fire in your covered grill and soak a couple handfuls of wood chips in water. Put the potatoes and onions in cold, salted water, bring to a boil, and cook for 15 minutes, till potatoes have softened. Drain. Pull the husks back from the corn but leave them attached. Pull off all the silk, then pull the husks back into place and tie around the corn with a strip of husk. 

Drop the lobsters in boiling water for about 3 minutes till they’re bright red. Remove from water. 

When the coals have burned down to red-hot, spread the wet wood chips across them. Lay the lobsters close together on the grill rack, spread the shellfish around them, and spread the vegetables over the top, ending with the asparagus lying in a single layer at the top. Put the lid on the grill and open the vents. Cook for about a half hour, until the mussels and clams have opened. Serve with bowls of melted butter. Yield: Serves 4
