When cooking raw beans you have to soak them overnight or boil them for 10 minutes and then pour the water out of them then do it a second time then put water in to start your beans. Beans have oligosaccarides on the surface of them that cause digestive problems.
Baked beans can be made from scratch. Start with Great Northern Bean, soak over night boil for 4 hours. Drain the water. Put tomato paste and water back in or use tomato sauce as a base for flavoring. Add Maple Syrup, Add Brown Sugar, Add chili powder, Add pepper, add what ever else you want to taste.
