  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dark molasses
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. Place beans and 1 quart water in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 1 hour. Drain and rinse; return beans to saucepan.
  2. Add salt and remaining water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 to 1 1/4 hours or until beans are tender. Drain, reserving 2 cups cooking liquid.
  3. In a greased 13 by 9 inch baking dish, combine beans, onions, mustard, brown sugar, molasses, bacon and 1 cup of reserved cooking liquid.
