Great Value Great Northern Beans, 16 oz
These are nice and clean, but you always need to "pick over" dried beans and then rinse them thoroughly. Years ago, I bought a digital pressure cooker, and my pre-soak days were over. I put the beans in the pressure cooker with enough water, a little bacon or ham or hog jowl, some garlic, some salt and pepper and a pinch of baking soda, stir, and pressure cook for about 33-36 minutes. I unplug the pressure cooker when it beeps and allow the beans to depressurize without disturbing them. When the cooker is finally opened, the beans are tender and seasoned. With some rice and cornbread, this is a meal. Nobody can complain about the cash you spent on this purchase! This is real food with real nutrition and real flavor. Some people love to eat them with ketchup, but I've always loved a splash of pepper vinegar.
I cook these in a crockpot and make refried beans when they are done! I had always had refried pintos growing up, but my husbands family uses these, and it's what he prefers. I feel like this brand is great quality and truly a great value! Cooks easily, doesn't have a chewy hardness that other brands have.
A very good value. I recommend them to anyone. There was very little preparation needed before soaking the beans. It was obvious the beans were pre-sorted and washed. The smoky bacon tomato crockpot bean dish turned out fantastic.
The best baked beans are made from scratch. I've been using dried beans for quite sometime and these beans make some great tangy- sweet baked beans. They need to be washed, sorted and soaked. Add your brown sugar, mustard, onion, bacon and cook them until the sauce comes together. I recommend dried beans over canned, every time.
I would recommend these beans. They are a family favorite and they are very affordable. I grew up eating ham beans and corn bread with them. that is the suggested recipe. they are a very good value and i would highly recommend them to others

This is good value for your money. I do however find more rocks and dirt clods in this brand than others I purchase.

I used these beans to make homemade ham and bean soup. I eat them maybe once or twice a week. They are great value.
