Howdy all! I'm working on a newspaper article about Boston Baked Beans and I'm looking for Boston-area natives to interview who grew up eating homemade baked beans. I'm especially interested in talking with folks who have kept this tradition going (though not required). You can email me at matt AT crispybits DOT com and I'll be sure to respond back to you.
That aside, baked beans are a new thing in my own household - I've been making them for about 4 years now. I follow the Durgin-Park recipe that's available from their website (though I use half the amount of brown sugar called for in that recipe). What recipes do you use?
