    1. 1
      In a large heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat, sauté bacon in canola oil until it renders most of its fat. Add vegetables and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender and slightly caramelized.
    2. 2
      Drain water from beans. Add beans, spices, sugar and broth to the pan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook beans uncovered until completely tender (approximately 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours). Make sure beans are completely covered with liquid during cooking; you may need to add a little water.
    3. 3
      When beans are ready, strain and reserve cooking liquid. Return cooking liquid to the stove and simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Stir beans back into the pot and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
