    My Easy Chili
    This is a good simple recipe for Chili. It's not hot, so kids can enjoy it too. You know prepared chili just doesn't taste right, and it's almost $2.00 a can now. I like to fix chili on cold, wet days with some cornbread on the side, or serve with Fritos.

    Brown 1 lb hamburger and 1 chopped onion in a skillet together and drain. Pour it in a large pot and add:

    1 can tomato sauce (8 ounces)
    1 can tomatoes (optional)
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 teaspoon garlic
    1 teaspoon oregano
    1 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    2 cans kidney beans drained with 4 cans of water

    Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes.

    Note: A lot of times I just use a small can of tomatoe paste
    instead of the sauce, and I rarely put a can of tomatoes in it.

    Boston Baked Beans (Recipe from 1800's)
    Pick over one quart pea beans, cover with cold water, and soak over night. In morning, drain, cover with fresh water, heat slowly (keeping water below boiling-point), and cook until skins will burst

    Drain beans, throwing bean-water out of doors, not in sink. Scald rind of three-fourths pound fat salt pork, scrape, remove one-fourth inch slice and put in bottom of bean-pot. Cut through rind of remaining pork every one-half inch, making cuts one inch deep. Put beans in pot and bury pork in beans, leaving rind exposed.

    Mix one tablespoon salt, one tablespoon molasses, and three tablespoons sugar; add one cup boiling water, and pour over beans; then add enough more boiling water to cover beans. Cover bean-pot, put in oven, and bake slowly six or eight hours, uncovering the last hour of cooking, that rind may become brown and crisp. Add water as needed. Many feel sure that by adding with seasonings one-half tablespoon mustard, the beans are more easily digested. If pork mixed with lean is preferred, use less salt.
