Salmon Pie

Country: Eastern Canada
Course: Side
Makes: 10 to 12 servings


  • 2 lbs dried white navy beans
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 lbs salt pork, sliced
  • 1/2 cup molasses


  1. Soak the beans overnight. The next morning, rinse and put them in a pot with water. The water level should be about two inches above the top of the beans. Boil for about 30 minutes, or until the beans are tender.
  2. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Transfer the beans to a casserole dish and mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Cover and bake for 6 hours, then remove about 1 cup of the beans and mash them with a potato masher. Mix them back in and return to the oven for another hour, this time uncovered.
