Aunt Charolette's Calico Baked Beans

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by rechelle

Easy and wonderful. I normally don't like baked beans but I fell in love with these when Aunt Charolette brought them to a family reunion. I have taken them many times to potluck dinners and am always asked for the recipe.

This is a hit in our family. Since Mr. JB has to keep his salt and sugar intake down, I don't use canned beans, and I reduce the amount of bacon. I soak a cup each of limas, kidney beans, and one other bean variety overnight, add the other ingredients and water to cover the beans, then cook this recipe in the crock pot on low. It works.
