Real Boston Baked Beans

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

The Home Comfort Range Cook Book

Circa 1900

Boil one pint of beans in a half gallon of water for one hour. Then pour off the water, put the beans in a large pan, pour over them half a pail of cold water and wash thoroughly. Repeat this several times, until the skins of the beans are all washed off. Place the beans in a half gallon stone jar and cover with water; add a pound of fat pork or bacon, a tablespoonful of molasses and a little salt, and bake all. Must be kept tightly covered, and, if it gets too dry, add more water.
