Here is our last recipe for Sumner Beans.
Some canner's do not or give you a choice but go read
the reason and fart less !
Place any extra ingredients into the bottom of the jar's prior to filling with beans or liquid.
Makes 7 Quarts
5 pounds of dried beans cleaned and soaked
The site I used for this sauce is my go to site Pick Your Own it gave me two choices a tomato base or molasses base. The link is at the bottom of this post.
Tomato base1 cup ketchup with 3 cups of broth from cooking beans
3 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon of each:
Molasses Base4 cups cooking liquid from beans
3 tablespoons of molasses
1 teaspoon vinegar
2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Take 8 cups of your soaking beans and put them into a large stock pot and simmer until you get a foam on top. I skim the foam like jam also take out any floating beans or shells. Also look for icky ones and remove them. Once the beans have been simmered turn off the heat and set them aside.
Prepare your liquid you may end up with extra but you should not come up short. Combine all your liquid ingredients and bring them up to a soft boil. Taste it after about 10 minutes of simmering to make sure you have the taste you like. You can add more of any ingredient but keep in mind you cannot take ingredients out once added. You want just keep the liquid even so you have enough to fill the jars.
Bring the Pressure canner to a steady steam flow for 10 minutes it clears the air out of the canner. Once 10 minutes has passed pop on the pressure cap and pressure for 75 minutes at 11 to 13 pounds of pressure. Once the time has passed let your canner cool until the presume is down to ZERO and the steam cap has fallen. Turn and take your top off tipped away from you and let the jars sit in the cooker for about 15 minutes then remove and place on a heat safe counter and let them cool for 24 hours. Once cooled room let the twist part of the top wipe clean and store in a cool place for up to 9 months. .
