    GV Navy Beans, dry, 3.25 cup
    Water, tap, 8 cup (8 fl oz)
    Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
    Wright's Hickory Smoked Sliced Bacon, 1 slice cut into small pieces


Place bacon pieces in large pot and fry until clear with edges brown, if you like. Add onion and saute until the onions are clear. Add beans and stir to coat them with oil from bacon. Add water and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours until beans are tender. This makes about 10 servings - 1 cup each. You can add smoked sausage to the beans about a half hour before they are done.

    Soaked 2 cups dry beans overnight, w/baking soda (great tip!). Used pound of honey & maple bacon, fried slightly crispy. Sauteed onions until caramelized. Used 2 cans chicken broth. Added bacon & onions & teaspoon minced garlic to beans & broth in crock pot on high for six hours. Fabulous! - 9/8/11

    couple of hints. I add baking soda to the water then bring to a boil, allow to boil for 2 minutes. Turn off heat cover and let sit for an hour. Drain water off, use chicken broth to cook beans in. Add's flavor and the baking soda before hand reduced gas. - 2/27/11

    I have a couple questions: One is the recipe says 1 slice of bacon, I assume that it should be 1 pound, and also I assume that it is calling for 8 cups of water at 8 oz. each cup for a total of 64 oz. Is this correct? - 2/16/18
