Boston Baked Beans

Submitted by: BUDGETMOM
Boston Baked Beans

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 pound dry white beans (northern or navy beans)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/4 cup molasses
    14 cup brown sugar
    1 onion, peeled and chopped
    3 slices bacon (raw bacon will yeild grease that is calculated)

Directions

Soak the beans overnight in plenty of tap water. Or, you can bring them to a boil on the stove and then turn them off, cover them and let them sit for an hour or two. The point of this is to reconstitute them some, making them easier to cook.

After the initial preparation boil your beans on the back of the stove for about half an hour. They won't be perfectly soft, but they will be almost soft. Drain off the cooking water. In a large casserole (2-quart) combine the semi-cooked beans, salt, dry mustard, molasses, sugar and chopped bacon. Add enough hot water to barely come to the top of the beans. Put a lid on the casserole, or tin foil. Bake the beans at 300 for about 5 to 7 hours. They will be tender, fragrant and delicious. Makes 12 servings, 1/2 cup each.

*Another way to cook this, good in the summertime, is to use a crock pot. Soak the beans as directed and then just dump everything in the crock pot instead. Put the lid on the Crock Pot after you've mixed everything up in it, and cook it on High for about 3 or 4 hours, or on low for 6 or 8 hours.
