    I made the Molasses baked beans recipe in the Simple Fare book. It was my first time making baked beans. I used soldier beans as they were what my Mom used.
    They were tasty but not as soft as I would think they should have been. Did they need to boil longer than the 30 minutes indicated in the recipe?

    Also, is there anywhere I can find the nutritional information for your recipes?

      Diane, I am happy that you made baked beans, and that it was your first time. I do usually boil mine for an hour, just to ensure a better texture. We do not have the nutritional breakdown of this recipe, but there are many free websites that let you add a recipe’s ingredients and it will give you the information you may want. My Fitness Pal is a good example.
