Recipe Ingredients for Boston Baked Beans

1 pound dry great Northern beans
8 cups water
5 ounces diced salt pork
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup molasses
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Recipe Directions for Boston Baked Beans

  1. The night before, combine the dry Beans and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Pour beans and their liquid into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.

  2. In the morning, drain off liquid, reserving 1 cup. Pour beans and the reserved liquid into the crock of a slow cooker. Stir in the salt pork, onion, molasses, brown sugar, mustard and pepper. Cover, and cook on Low for 12 to 14 hours. Stir before serving.

  3. *Instead of boiling, cover the beans with water so there's at least 2 inches of water over the beans. Add 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda to water, stir to mix well and let sit overnight.
