Total time

5 minutes


Ingredients

  • 2 cups Navy Beans
  • ½ pound bacon
  • 1 onion (finely diced)
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dry mustard
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar


Method

  1. Soak beans overnight in cold water. Simmer the beans in the same water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve the liquid. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Arrange the beans in a 2 quart bean pot or casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of dish, and layering them with bacon and onion. In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil. Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent the beans from getting too dry.
