Baked Beans, the Way God Intended

2 cups dried navy beans
1/2 pound vegan pork, diced

1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup maple syrup (the real stuff)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
salt and pepper
Soak the beans overnight in a Dutch oven. In the morning, drain, rinse, cover with fresh water, bring to a boil, and simmer 30 minutes.
Drain. Add beans back to the Dutch oven. Add remaining ingredients, enough water to cover, and stir well.
Put the pot, covered, into the camp’s oven preheated to 250 and slow bake 6-8 hours. If the water bakes away early, add more water and stir.
Before serving, remove the lid and bake for a few more minutes so the beans brown on top.
This freezes very well!

My condition was progressively deteriorating over the past 2 years. I’d been good at taking my medicine and exercising so knew I should have felt better. My arthritis and scleroderma were really affecting my quality of life. Increasing pain and fatigue were wearing me down.

Dr. Jenny and Ajoy came well-recommended so I got in touch. I completed a short questionnaire before my consultation. Covid meant it was all done over VC. They put me at ease, and it was like we were in the same room. They asked all the right medical and lifestyle questions without judgement. They devised a plan which was holistic, realistic and easy to follow. Their gentle and knowledgeable coaching kept me on track.

The resulting decrease in swelling and pain has given me a new lease of life in a few weeks. I feel so much better and look so much happier. I felt they were genuinely interested in my well-being. Happy to highly recommend them.
