Boston Baked Beans

  • 5 minutes
  • 6 hours

As the weather gets cooler, you’ll want to curl up to this hearty meal.



4 Serves*
1 kg smoked ham hocks
400 g canned cannellini beans, drained
420 g can tomato soup
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
*Serving size calculator is approximate, feel free to adjust by adding a pinch here and there as needed


  1. Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and season generously. Note, the hocks will have a thick skin; this is near impossible to remove until after being slow cooked.
  2. Into the can of soup, add ½ cup (125mL) water, swirl to remove all the soup and pour into the cooker, stir to combine.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Remove the hocks, peel back the skin, shred the ham from the bone, discard skin and bones and return the meat to the slow cooker. Stir through before serving.
