Baked beans in Maine is an every Saturday night tradition. We have them along with potato salad or cole slaw, and hotdogs of some kind. We always have cornbread or biscuits, too. It is the best supper of the week for us. I have had this every week since I was a little girl--many, many years. I love them as much today as I did when I was little. This recipe uses four kinds of beans, but it can be made with just one kind if you choose and will be as good as if you used four. Until last year, I always did the proper thing and baked them in my brown bean pot in the oven (I have five pots--all sizes). This past year I tried the crockpot and it worked fine. I always make a double batch. You can freeze them. My husband likes beans and toast for breakfast on Sunday morning. It's all tradition, I guess. NOTE: If you are a vegetarian--omit the salt port and put a big chunk of butter in the pot.
