Soak Beans overnight, with plenty of water above the beans. They soak it up!
In the morning, drain the beans, cover with water, add 1 tsp salt and cook until slightly tender -- 20-30 minutes. However, you must watch these babies, because they have a big tendency to boil over!Just bring them to a boil (watching them), then lower the heat --- and still watch them!
After the beans are cooked, drain again and rinse them under hot water, and place them in a lightly sprayed or greased (oleo) casserole dish.
Dab Butter over beans; mix "lightly"! or they get squishy.
Stir in Molasses.
Finally, pour in sour cream and mix "tenderly".
Bake at 350 for one hour. (again, keep an eye on them, I don't think I usually bake them for and entire hour).
