Boston Massachusetts Information -
Boston Trivia



Why is Boston called Beantown?
Why is Boston called Beantown? Because of Boston Baked Beans, of course! Why did Bostonians love baked beans? Well, Boston had tons of beans, because they´re cheap and easy to grow, store and cook. Boston had tons of molasses because of trade. Sugar and Molasses were brough in by the shipload from the West Indies, to be sold in Boston in exchange for rum and other local goods.

Put together beans and molasses, and voila!

Boston Baked Beans are in essence made by taking normal navy beans, soaking them in molasses, and then baking them for several hours.
