For the tart apples, you can use whatever kind you have on hand but when making this recipe I prefer to use Granny Smith Apples. You can always find them at your local grocery store. Pink Lady apples are also a good alternative.

Baked Beans is one of my favorite side dishes to make during the summer when I am grilling. I find that baked bean dishes go especially well with chicken or any type of red meat cooked on the grill.

This Baked Bean recipe is not your typical baked bean dish. The ham, apples and raisins add a bunch of flavor to an otherwise plain pot of baked beans.

Cooking time can vary by a couple of hours but you will know when the beans are ready when the apples are tender.

    I really want to try this recipe but I have a couple of questions. Why are “baked beans” listed twice in the ingredients? What kind of baked beans?
    If it’s regular bush’s canned baked beans, I thought they were not diabetic friendly?
    Thank you!

    1. If you look at the recipe card, one of the baked beans ingredients has no salt added. I updated the paragraph in question for clarification. As far as this recipe being diabetic friendly, if you google baked beans for diabetes you will find tons of information on this topic. Enjoy!
