Pressure Cooker Maple Baked Beans

I tried really hard to resist, I really did. I know that the last thing we need in this house is another small appliance, but I wanted, nay, needed, one of these magical machines. Kevin makes an awful lot of fun of me, calls me the "appliance queen", and despite all the ribbing, he still buys me whatever I ask for. He's a good dude.

It wasn't my fault, this time, you see. I'm going to blame you. Yes. ALL of you. If the Instant Pot craze hadn't reached such a furor, I might not be making yogurt on this gloomy, overcast, February day.

And yet, here we are. With another new appliance and no real storage space for it. Needless to say, it's been sitting on my counter since it came in a week ago and I may have been cooking everything I can think of in it. I started with a rib roast and red wine reduction, then steel cut oats, then barley for beef barley soup, then baby potatoes. I followed all of those things up with these amazing beans. As I write this, I'm making yogurt!

Kevin doesn't even like beans, and he said these were good. My mom raved about them. And I ate half the batch before I even took photos! Haha! If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that I shared a 7 Day Pressure Cooker Challenge, which I had every intention of following, and then life got in the way, but it looks like a great challenge for anyone who's new to the pressure cooker world! (shameless plug: follow my awesome {fledgeling} facebook page here!)
