like to spend some of my free time looking around
second hand bookshops for old or out of print
recipe books. A lot of the time you only find
the same unpopular titles but, from time to time,
you will find something special or something that
just appeals because it is unusual or novel. A
book that falls into the category of being unusual
or novel is The Heinz Book
of Baked Bean Recipes!
someone who grew up loving baked beans this really
appealed to me. Presumably as a book which was
produced to promote Heinz Beans they will not
mind me reproducing a few of the recipes for you
to enjoy - especially the kids, old and young!
everywhere appreciate the value of beans as an
important source of protein and fibre. This tasty
and nutritious dish should not only please them,
