Uncle Jack’s famous baked beans

Uncle Jack's famous baked beans

Like most food blogs, this recipe starts with a story. Uncle Jack introduced me to food. My mother was a serviceable cook, preparing family food that catered to my father's limited preferences, as well as his demand that each dinner entree was prepared as before without variation. Food was never an adventure.

 On one of my winter vacations to visit Uncle Jack, he prepared Kasha and Bowties. It was unlike the dish my mother prepared; mushy noodles and desiccated kasha kernels. His noodles were al dente, and the kasha was moist, with a mushroom gravy. I had no idea that an adequately-prepared food could be slightly modified to produce a delicious dish. 

When I told him I was impressed with his cooking, he brought me into his kitchen. He loved to cook, and never treated it as a chore. To him, cooking was an enjoyable activity and a way to express personal creativity. 

Of the various meals he prepared, my favorite was his baked beans recipe. The first time I made used his recipe, I brought it to an friend's annual pot-luck barbecue. It was a hit. The following year, he phoned the usual guests to invite them to the annual barbecue. I asked, "What should I bring?" He replied with surprise, "The baked beans, of course!"

Whenever I've brought Uncle Jack's Famous Baked Beans—to our multi-family swim club dinners, or Chili cook-offs— the response as been the same: "Bring those again."

Uncle Jack's Famous Baked Beans
1 stick pepperoni 
Dice and sauté for a several minutes. Remove from pan but keep the pepperoni oil in the pan

Add to the pan : 
6-8 yellow onions, diced.
1 green pepper, diced.
Sauté slowly. It will look like an enormous pile when you start, but, like spinach, when you're done you'll wonder where it all went. 

1 large can of baked beans
Several smaller cans of different types of beans. I use black beans, white beans, red kidney beans, and pinto beans. Open the cans and dump all the beans into a colander. Wash off *all* that canned goop. We're going to replace it with something much tastier. 

Put rinsed beans into large pot and add:
1 bottle barbecue sauce 
1 bottle pancake syrup
Add the sautéed onions, peppers, pepperoni. Mix it all together. The liquid level should be contents even with the solid contents.

 At this point you should taste it and make any personal modifications. Salt, ground pepper, a bit of molasses, red pepper flakes, etc.

Heat the contents and simmer for an hour. Stir as needed. The liquid will reduce and thicken to something wonderful. 

Bring it to a cookout. Then be prepared to make it again.

Coronavirus mental health advice

Take care of yourself

Anxiety of any sort can have negative effects on your health. In the short term, it can cause irritability, headaches, muscle tension, insomnia, fatigue, and many other symptoms. Longer-term chronic stress can lead to more serious afflictions, like high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes.

The markets and economy are certainly not worth risking your health, so it's important to take care of yourself during this stressful period. Try getting outside for some fresh air, taking a daily walk, riding a bike, or eating healthy foods. You can also try relaxation techniques, like meditation, yoga, massage, or deep breathing. Getting plenty of sleep is important, too. If the evening news is causing you alarm and keeping you up at night, consider reading an enjoyable book instead.

Mind your media usage and look for positive distractions

If you find yourself constantly scrolling through social media on your phone or glued to the TV screen, there's no doubt you will be inundated with stories of gloom and doom. Some media outlets tend to sensationalize stories to attract a larger audience. This can cause unnecessary alarm. If you feel you must check the headlines, try visiting the websites of more trusted sources, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization. They will have the most up-to-date news on the coronavirus, along with tips to protect yourself.

It's also good to find positive distractions, like watching an upbeat movie, listening to your favorite music, or talking with friends and family
