Autumn Beans with Apple Cider, Bacon and Raisins

Here's another fun baked bean variation, we loved these Autumn Beans with Apple Cider, Bacon and Raisins! The boys kept saying add a dash of cloves and they'd be Holiday Beans for Christmas. They'd make a great side dish with ham and only need to simmer for about 20 minutes once the bacon is done cooking. While the recipe calls for apple cider, I didn't have any at the time and used some frozen condensed apple juice. That turned out to be a tasty addition! I also felt they needed just a bit of brown sugar:@)

Autumn Beans-adapted from Taste of Home
8 strips of bacon-I used 4 strips and all of the fat
1/4 C onion, chopped
1 C apple cider-I used 1/4 C apple juice concentrate
2 cans (16 oz each) baked beans with juice-I drained one can
1/4 to 1/2 C raisins-I used 1/4 C
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 Tblsp brown sugar, optional to taste-my addition
  1. Fry bacon until crisp, remove to paper towel and break into small pieces when cool.
  2. Drain fat reserving 2 Tblsp, fry onion in bacon fat until tender.
  3. Add everything else, stir, bring to light boil, reduce heat and lightly simmer for 20-25 minutes stirring occasionally.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
