Even ‘non-cookers’ will love this recipe for Baked Beans…
1. Wash and sort 1 pound (2 1/2 cups) white beans. Soak overnight in lots of water OR boil 5 minutes and allow to soak in the water for an hour. Drain and discard cooking/soaking water. (This is supposed to prevent “‘gas!”)
2. Mix beans in large cooking pan with-
1/2 cup chopped bacon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon salt (I use a little less)
1/2 cup chili sauce OR salsa
1 large chopped onion
1/2 cup molasses
1-2 tablespoons prepared mustard
And enough water to cover the soaked beans. Bring to a boil. Put bean mixture in large casserole (OR crock pot). Add enough water to cover.
Bake, covered, in a slow oven (275F) for at least 6 hours OR on on low in crockpot for 6-7 hours. Add hot water as needed to keep beans moist.
This makes a big batch. Freeze any extras in serving size containers.
