Apple Sage Baked Beans | Comfort Food with a Twist
Source: crosbys


  • 2 cups dried white beans (navy is my favourite)
  • 1 slice bacon (omit for vegetarian/vegan version)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 apples, peeled and cut in chunks
  • 1/2 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 Tbsp. chopped fresh sage (or ½-1 Tbsp. dried)*
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Generous pinch of pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups water

*Can substitute thyme.

4-6 serving(s)


  • Soak 2 cups of dried navy or white beans in water overnight.
  • The next day, drain the beans, put them in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Fry the bacon (if using), discard pan drippings and roughly chop.
  • Drain the beans and put them in a large ovenproof pot with a tight fitting lid, or a bean crock.
  • Add the bacon, chopped carrot, onion and apple.
  • Mix together the molasses, maple syrup, Dijon, sage, garlic, salt, pepper and water and pour over the beans. (Add additional water, if required, so beans are just covered.).
  • Cover the pot and cook at 275 F for 4-6 hours, until tender. Stir occasionally and add water if necessary so the beans do not dry out.
  • Take the lid off for the last hour of cooking to help the beans brown and to thicken the sauce.
