Baked beans are an American tradition, dating back to the early 1800s. Back then, New Englanders prepared beans in large pots of sauce that cooked for hours in large brick ovens. Slow baking made the beans tender and brought out deep flavors other cooking methods just don’t deliver. B&M Beans are sweetened with molasses and cane sugar. They’re an excellent source of protein and fiber. Most B&M varieties are 99% fat free. B&M perfected the brick oven baking process for baked beans 150 years ago. Today, B&M is the only brand that delivers the rich baked bean flavor this traditional slow cooking method provides. B&M Beans and brown breads not only add a tasty side to your meal, they are the perfect accompaniment to any family barbecue, and a hearty, delicious snack.
