    VillageMom's Note:

    This is a great recipe I found for baked beans. It was originally posted from The Sacramento Bee, 1998. This recipe is used by the Durgin-Park Restaurant in Boston, MA. This restaurant dates back to the American Revolution and is famous for its Boston baked beans. The Durgin-Park cook, Tommy Ryan, has prepared this recipe at the restaurant for the past 37 years. The restaurant serves 1,000 diners on an average Saturday evening. A recipe that has been around this long - and has served many people - can't be wrong.

    1. 1
      Use California pea beans, York State beans or small white navy beans.
    2. 2
      Soak beans overnight. Ensure water covers the beans by 4 - 5 inches. The beans will soak up the water.
    3. 3
      In the morning, preheat oven to 325°F
    4. 4
      Place the baking soda in a large pot and fill half way with water. Bring to a boil and add the beans. Boil for 10 minutes. Drain beans in a colander and run cold water through them. Set aside.
    5. 5
      Cut the bacon into 1 inch lengths. Put half of the bacon on the bottom of a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish (needs lid). Add the onion. Put beans in the casserole. Put the remaining bacon on top of the beans.
    6. 6
      Mix the sugar, molasses, mustard, salt and pepper with 3 cups of hot water and pour over the beans. Cover the casserole with the lid and place in preheated oven.
    7. 7
      Bake for 6 hours. Check the casserole periodically to check the amount of liquid. Add water to the beans slowly as needed to keep them moist; do not flood them.
    8. 8
      Remove the casserole from the oven and serve.
