- 1Remove stones from beans, rinsing well in a colander.
- 2Place beans in a large pan, adding a teaspoon of salt along with enough water to cover contents by 3 inches.
- 3Over high heat, bring beans to a rolling boil for 2 minutes.
- 4Remove pan from heat, cover pan and let stand for 1 hour.
- 5Uncover pan, breing contents back to a boil.
- 6Reduce heat and simmer until beans are tender (1 to 1 1/2 hours).
- 7As necessary, add more water to keep beans well covered.
- 8Drain beans well, reserving liquid.
- 9In a 2 1/2 quart bean pot (or casserole) combine molasses, brown sugar, mustard, ketchup and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
- 10Add drained beans. Then stir in enough reserved cooking liquid to cover beans.
- 11Mil well.
- 12One one side of pot, push whole onion down into beans.
- 13Cut several gashes in the salt pork and push it down into beans on other side of the pot.
- 14Cover pot, place in oven and set heat to 350 degrees.
- 15Bake until beans are bubbling (about 1 hour).
- 16Reduce heat to 250 degrees and continue to bake for 6 to 8 hours more, stirring every hour or so.
- 17As beans cook, they will absorb liquid.
- 18Continue cooking, adding reserved liquid (or water) a little at a time to keep beans moist, but not soupy.
- 19Baked beans are done when thick and fragrant, with a deep, brownish red color.
- 20When serving, remove and discard onion, while keeping in sliced salt pork if desired.
