1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup-1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. molasses
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1/2 tsp, dry mustard
1-1/2 tsp. salt
8oz. bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
Soak beans overnight. Drain and rinse. Stir in the onion, brown sugar molasses, ketchup, dry mustard and salt into the beans. Add additional water if needed. Simmer covered for 5 hours. Stir in cooked bacon. Simmer 1 hour longer.
If you prefer, after the beans are soaked, mix with remaining ingredients and pour into a 2 qt casserole with a tight fitting lid. Bake covered at 300 for 3-4 hours. Stir occasionally and add boiling water too dry.
