pHi Everyone. I wrote to Bush's to inquire about the safety of their baked bean products, which by the way are delicious. I've re-typed the response I received below (btw, does anyone know why it won't just paste in?). How nice to know that they are working towards a safe alternative ingredient!/p
p"Thanks for your inquiry regarding our product. At this time, our only item containing any peanut product is our Barbecue Baked Beans. It contains a very small amount of peanut oil. The production lines are completely cleaned and sanitized after each item is made. I hope this helps you -- I can tell you that we are replacing this ingredient in our Barbecue Baked Beans later this summer with an ingredient that is not a known allergen. When it is changed, the label will reflect the change. Please let me know if you have any further questions. - Joy Garrett, Bush Brothers, Consumer Relations"/p

Great news! I had e-mailed them about this, probably a year ago. Maybe they had alot of complaints and realized that it's not worth it to put peanut oil in their product. I like to think all of us who complain really do make a difference! Thanks for the info!

I also sent them an e-mail to tell them I appreciate the change and when it goes into effect, I will buy only their beans.

I haven't checked their barbecue beans label recently. Does anyone know if they still contain peanut oil?

Checked the Bush's Barbecue Baked Beans at Walmart today. Yes, still has PEANUT OIL listed in the ingredient. Just to let people know.

I don't have a recipe, but add the ketchup as well as we use a little mustard too, and your recipe sounds the same. I think every family has their own twist. We top our with chopped ham and bacon. Sometimes we even boil the beans with the hambone.

Kind of hard to be vegetarian when you eat pork hocks. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] I did an internet search and found a recipe almost like I remember - except they used mustard as well. Maybe I'll do that.

annamarie, i use mustard too never thought of ketchup. i usually soak the beans over night in water, then in the morning i throw it all together in a crock pot and cook all day long they come out wonderful. this ought to make you laugh .. i learned the hard way to make sure i cover the bowl of beans soaking in water..seems one night my cats decided to fetch the beans one by one out of the bowl and then played toss them across the floor in the middle of the night. they do not belong on the counter(the cats) but somehow they got up there..so now i cover while soaking... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] oh and to add my crock pot comes out of the original setting so i can pop it into the fridge when we are done..hence not needing to find a really big bowl..that might help you? does yours do that> you can just pop the top on and whola!!no need for plastic wrap or tin foil...

I'm thinking about using my crock pot. The only problem is, after soaking, the beans need to be cooked (boiled) until soft. Then, mix everything and bake. In the morning I have to get my son ready and take him to school. I'd have to get up extra early (me and mornings don't get along well [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] ) or I won't get them in the crockpot until 11-ish, which means eating even later then we usually do.

annamarie if these are for supper, then just soaking and then putting them with all the ingredients in the crock and cooking all day will make them nice and soft and tender no need to boil them. i have never boiled them and they have come out wonderful!! so you will not have to get up early..
