baked borlotti beans

borlotti beans (about a mug full, either green or dried. if dried, soaked over night)

1 tin of tomatoes (or homemade equivalent)

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 onion, diced

1 tbsp soft dark brown sugar

1 tsp all spice

worcester sauce, few good shakes

soy sauce, a dash


Cook the beans in salted water. They take ages.. perhaps an hour? Then drain and combine with other ingredients and bake in a slow oven for a couple of hours. Taste and season.
