B and M Brick Oven Baked Beans uses the traditional method of baking their beans in open pots in brick ovens. This time consuming process creates a highly flavorful bean reminiscent of old fashioned New England "bean suppers", and is a reason why B and M beans have been a New England favorite since 1927.
So, I wanted to begin buying this Maine produced product and have thought of multiple uses for these precious little glass jars. As I was in the check out line at Hannaford's, the little high school girls bagging the groceries, stated how much they loved those little jars and we began a conversation on the fact that I too, loved them and all the various ways we could use them. Such as, little flower vases, as we brought in the fresh flower cuttings from our gardens, little desserts, iced tea and lemonade for our summer picnics, or a delightful cocktail when we wanted to be a little country, a vintage look in the bath for holding cotton balls or bath salts, a spare change jar, a small herb plant container for your kitchen window...the list goes on into infinity! Now, don't you want to run out and purchase some of your own? By the way, the beans are amazingly delicious without adding any other ingredients! "It's a good thing"...said Martha!
