  • 2 cups Dry Navy Beans
  • 6 cups Cold Water
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 lbs Bacon Ends (poor quality ask butcher if you can’t find it)
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • 2 tsp Dry Mustard
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup Dark Molasses

Wash beans. Combine beans & cold water in large pot. Bring to boil; boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat let stand for 1 hour, or you can do as I do and soak the beans over night. Add Salt; simmer about 1 hour or until beans are tender. Drain, reserving 1 3/4c liquid, add water if needed to achieve 1 3/4c set aside. Cook bacon till crisp reserving some fat for later, crumble bacon set bacon aside, place beans into a backing dish or pot capable of going into the oven, mix mustard, bacon and some of the bacon fat, sugar & molasses into bean liquid; and pour over beans. Cover and bake at 300 degrees for 5 to 7 hours yes that is right I said 5 to 7 hours, add water if needed.
