Bean There, Done That: Ala. Wins World Record

PINSON, Ala. (AP) - Alabama has bagged one more championship title: largest pot of baked beans.

The Guinness Book of World Records awarded the Alabama Butterbean Festival on Saturday with the record.

The Pinson festival boasted 1,010 gallons of butterbeans in a 4-foot tall, 7-foot wide metal pot constructed by area businesses.

The pot weighed about 1,000 pounds.

The beans were sold to festival visitors after the record was confirmed.
