Category: Beans

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Dried white pea beans
  • 1 md Onion -- diced
  • 1/2 c Molasses
  • 1/2 ts Dry mustard
  • 1/4 c Brown sugar -- packed
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 lb Salt pork -- lean, diced


Pick over beans and rinse. Place in a large bowl; add water to cover. Let
stand overnight; drain. Combine beans and onions in a large saucepan; add
water to cover; heat to boiling; cover. Simmer 45 minutes, or until skins
of beans burst when you blow on several in a spoon. Drain liquid into a
small bowl. Measure 1 cup of the bean liquid and combine with molasses,
mustard, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl. Layer half of the salt pork and
all of the beans into an 8 cup bean pot. Pour molasses mixture overtop; add
just enough more saved liquid to cover beans. Top with remaining salt pork,
pressing down into liquid; cover. Bake at 300F 4 hours; uncover. Bake 1
hour longer, or until beans are deep brown, tender, and as dry as you like
them. (After 2 hours baking, check beans, and if they seem dry, add more
saved bean liquid to keep them moist.)
