  • 1. 1 pound dried navy beans (cover and soak with water and 1 ½ tablespoons of salt for 8 – 16 hours in a cool place or refrigerator) The night before you make them works out fine.
  • 2. 6 strips thick cut bacon (sliced crosswise into ¼ - ½ inch pieces)
  • 3. 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 4. 2 cloves garlic (crushed and minced)
  • 5. 1 ¾ cups cold water
  • 6. ¼ cup dark molasses

Drain and rinse beans through a strainer.
Place bacon in pressure cooker and turn heat to medium (Instant pot press the sauté button). Cook bacon until crispy. Stirring occasionally. Add the diced onion and black pepper; sauté for 1 minute. Add the garlic and continue cooking until fragrant (about 30 seconds)
While bacon is cooking in a small bowl mix together the molasses, maple syrup, soy sauce and 1 ¾ cup of water until well combined.
When bacon mixture is done pour in ½ cup of the molasses mixture and scrap the bottom of the slow cooker to scrap any drippings off the bottom. Add the beans, ¼ teaspoon salt, bay leaves, and mix in the rest of the molasses mixture making sure all the beans are covered.
Close lid – and cook at High pressure for 20 minutes, and then allow 20 minutes of natural release. After 20 minutes move venting knob to venting position to release the remaining pressure and open lid carefully. Mix in the Dijon mustard and cider vinegar.
Press the sauté button and cook to desired consistency. At this point you can also add salt and pepper to taste, extra vinegar, and molasses if needed.
