Digest The News: Car Talk Will Go Silent – Sort Of

After 25 years on the air via NPR, Car Talk‘s hosts, “Click and Clack The Tappet Brothers” will be retiring this Fall.

BOSTON – The brothers behind the mic at Car Talk announced on their website this morning that they will retire from their NPR radio show in October.  But, Ray and Tom Magliozzi said their chit-chat can still be heard in a new form, as 25 years of material will be mashed up and compiled into a weekly show after the brothers sign off this fall. Read more here.

If you’re like me and you like to start your weekend off with Car Talk and Wait Wait… you’ll be relieved to read that the show will continue even after the hosts retire. It will still be wonderful to hear those hilarious guffaws and jokes on Saturday mornings.

To pay homage to 25 years on air, answering everyone’s car questions, we’ve decided to include a recipe for:

Don’t Drive Like My Brother – Boston Baked Beans

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups navy beans
  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
Ready, Set, Cook:
  1. Soak beans overnight in cold water. Simmer the beans in the same water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve the liquid.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  3. Arrange the beans in a 2 quart bean pot or casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of dish, and layering them with bacon and onion.
  4. In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry.
