Before the summer wraps up, you have to try this delicious baked beans recipe. They go great with our baby-back ribs.

The Butter Beans can sometimes be hard to find, but they are worth the search. In my local grocery store, they sometimes go by the name Limagrands (and it’s the Superfine brand). I find them at Wegman’s on a regular basis too.
