This recipe came about as a culmination of a few different recipes I had tried. I tweaked it until I made it my own. Feel free to take it and tweak it and make it your own.
Lisa’s Baked Beans
1 bean pot
2 pounds white navy beans, soaked overnight.
1 pound (or so, you don’t have to be exact) of salt pork, rind removed
¾ cup molasses
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry mustard
3 medium onions, quartered
After the beans have soaked all night, rinse them and put them into the biggest bowl you have in your kitchen. Add all the ingredients and give it a good stir. Place the beans in a pot and cover them with hot water. Stop as soon as you see the water touch the top of the beans. Place in a 250 degree oven overnite. I usually put these beans on before I go to bed. They went into the oven at 10pm and they were finished about 8am, so about 10 hours. Yours might take more or less time. You really have to test them for doneness. They should turn a nice dark brown color and be creamy and tender.
*Always put a foil lined cookie sheet under the bean pot in case of spillage. Mine always seem to bubble over slightly so I have a nice sticky mess!
