History[edit] Bean Jar has long been a well known part of Guernsey
culture. Bakers would allow residents to cook the dish in their ovens overnight, to be eaten at breakfast. This was common practice until the 1920s,[1] especially on Sundays when the ovens were not used.[2] The dish is still popular in Guernsey, with local cafes and restaurants often featuring the dish in colder months. It is also served at Lé Viaer Marchi, a National Trust of Guernsey
annual festival. Recipes[edit] No two Bean Jar recipes are alike; except the BBC, Tostevin, and Hedgecomber ones which are identical.
