This is a recipe my mother made when we were kids. I don't know how old it is or where it came from. Delicious, comfort food with beans, bacon, brown sugar and tomatoes. I have also made this with canned beans.......use 4 or 5 cans beans, rinsed and drained instead. We always serve this with cornbread. I have put in the amount of brown sugar I usually use but you can either add more or less, depending on your personal taste.
