 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Great northern or small
  • 2 lb Mixed beans - Great
  • Northerns, white beans
  • Romans, and random mix.
  • 1 ts Salt (omitted)
  • 1 ts Dry mustard
  • 2 ts Dry mustard
  • 1/2 ts Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 ts Black pepper from a bottle
  • 1 ds Hot sauce
  • 1 ts (heaping) hot chili
  • Condiment
  • 1/2 c Chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 c Coarse chopped onion
  • 1/4 c Molasses or honey
  • 1/2 c (scant) honey
  • 1/4 c Brown sugar
  • 8 ts White sugar
  • 1/4 c Cider vinegar
  • 1/2 c White vinegar


Presoak beans. Drain. Combine dry ingredients and mix with beans; stir in
other ingredients. Pour into 1 1/2 qt. or 2 qt. baking dish or bean pot.
[Obviously, if you double the recipe like I did, you'll need a bigger pot
:-] Pour in boiling water to cover. Cover. Bake at 300 degrees for 6
hours; add a bit of boiling water if needed. (Crock-pot method: cook on
low 8-10 hours.)

Comments: I just dumped everything on top of the beans and stirred them;
then covered them with hot tap water. They took a lot longer than 10 hours
to cook, but that might have been due to too-low heat on the crockpot.
(Also, reportedly vinegar and other acid substances need to be added at the
end of cooking else they'll make the beans tough.)

These beans were *really* good. The caramelized onions were even better.
I've enjoyed the beans plain, with barbecue sauce, and with spinach and
corn added.
