This was my grandmothers recipe that she only shared with her granddaughters. We had to literally stand by her and measure all the ingredients as she just went by her eye for ingredients. Its more of a sweet and sour baked bean, not as heavy as some baked bean recipes. I hope you enjoy it. Goes great with baked ham.


  1. Soak beans overnight or at least 8 hours. Drain beans, put in dutch oven and cover with clean hot water. When beans start to cook, scum off and add salt. Cook slow til almost done. Put in casserole dish.
  2. Add: Sugar.
  3. Mustard.
  4. Vinegar.
  5. Bacon grease.
  6. Stir until sugar and grease dissolve. Sprinkle with pepper, Add strips of bacon on top and Bake at 350 for about 1 hour or until bacon is brown.
