  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 8 oz cooked cannelloni beans, drained
  • 8 oz cooked lima beans, drained
  • 8 oz cooked dark kidney beans, drained
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Notes
This recipe comes from Heather Houde, one of our neighbors from Maryland. She used to live in New England, and won several County Fair ribbons for her beans. Substitute Barbecue Sauce or Chef Ryan’s mop sauce in lieu of ketchup, brown sugar and apple cider vinegar.

Check sausage and bacon for allergens.
