Recipe Ingredients for Once and Future Bean (Lower sodium try I)

16 oz Beans, Great Northern, Mature Seeds
8 oz Center Cut Bacon
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
2 pepper Peppers, Jalapeno
2 oz Tomato Paste
2 oz Domino Dark Brown Sugar
0.25 cup Molasses
3 cup Vegetable Broth
0.25 tsp Pepper, Red Or Cayenne
1 tsp Pepper, Black
1 tsp Salt

Recipe Directions for Once and Future Bean (Lower sodium try I)

  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees F.

  2. Soak beans in a plastic container overnight in just enough cold water to submerge them completely.

  3. Place a cast iron Dutch oven over medium heat and stir in the bacon, onion, and jalapenos until enough fat has rendered from the bacon to soften the onions, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, dark brown sugar, and molasses.

  4. Drain the beans and reserve the soaking liquid. Add the drained beans to the Dutch oven. Place the soaking liquid in a measuring cup and add enough vegetable broth to equal 4 cups of liquid. Add the liquid to the Dutch oven and bring to a boil over high heat. Add in cayenne, black pepper and salt. Give them a stir and cover with the lid. Place the Dutch oven in the oven for 6 to 8 hours, or until the beans are tender.
