Baked Beans make good bait for Tench and Carp.
They can be used straight from the can as they are already cooked but they can be quite a messy bait as they are covered in tomato sauce. Preferably open a tin before fishing and rinse them clean.
Hooked lightly through the end, the fish love them when they get used to them.
A few used as free offerings is a good idea, but not too many.

Butter Beans and Broad Beans used in much the same way as Baked Beans again can be a very effective bait, even more so on hard fished waters where the fish can shy away from normal, run of the mill, baits.
