This wonderful dish is not the overly sweet thing that some baked beans taste like. Instead, it reminds me of a gourmet quality "pork and beans." Really good flavor!

Recipe Ingredients for Baked Beans

2 cups navy beans, dried
6 tbl Molasses
1 Onion
1/2 tsp mustard, dry
1 tsp salt
2 tbl brown sugar
4 bacon

Recipe Directions for Baked Beans

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Place the navy beans in a big pot on the stove -- cover with water till they are submerged by about 3 inches. Simmer for about one hour -- till beans are not mushy but have softened.

  3. Place diced onion and cut up pieces raw bacon in large bean pot or casserole dish with lid.

  4. In heat proof measuring cup or other device, place the molasses and powdered mustard. When beans are ready, fill the rest of the cup with hot water, place in the microwave and heat till it begins to boil.

  5. Drain beans and pour into bean pot. Pour contents of measuring cup into bean pot. If this covers beans, then put bean pot in oven. If not, boil a little more water and adds to the bean pot until the beans are covered.

  6. Bake for 5 or so hours, until beans are done. Take the lid off, stir in the brown sugar and the salt. Cook for another hour or so to condense the liquid.
