Homemade Baked Beans with Smoked Ham

Homemade Baked Beans
Yummy Baked Beans...Anyone?

Happy New Year! What better way to start 2013 than with a wholesome breakfast and nothing says wholesome like good old baked beans on toast. Sure you can just crack open a can of beans, but like most things, its much healthier when it’s homemade, not to mention much yummier!

I admit the name “baked” beans is slightly misleading as no baking is involved. Instead, dried beans are soaked overnight, which isn’t terribly tricky, but does take some forward planning. Then you just chuck it in a pot with a some smoked ham (or that left-over Christmas ham) and leave to simmer. The final addition of flavour and spices gives it a delicious kick you won’t find in any can.
