BEAN-HOLE BEANS

What's a bean-hole bean? No, it's not a bean with a hole in it. Bean-hole beans get their name because they are baked in a hole. For hundreds of years, the Penobscot Indians of Maine cooked their food in a hole in the ground lined with rocks. The first thing you need to cook bean-hole beans is a shovel!


Recipe for bean-hole beans:

Put the beans and other ingredients in a cast iron pot and cover with water and a lid. Place the pot in the hole, cover with a wet dish towel or burlap sack, shovel some of the embers and ashes on top of the pot, and then cover with dirt. Cooking time varies depending on which recipe is used but it can take as long as 16 hours. Then get ready with a shovel and a bowl!
