    Cheri B's Note:

    Thank You Aunt Alta, this is her recipe. It is one of those make in the morning and let it cook all day or do the day ahead. Works well to make ahead and reheat in a crock pot to the picnic.

      Your Aunt Alta knows her beans! This is one of the best bean recipes I have ever had. Followed directions except after final mixing I put them straight into the crock pot and cooked them on low for 6 hours. Everyone enjoyed them. I will be making these again REAL soon.
