DIRECTIONS

  • Do this a day before: place the beans in a large bowl.
  • Add enough cold water to cover the beans by 3 inches.
  • Let stand at room temperature overnight.
  • The next day drain the beans very well in a colander; set aside.
  • Set oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large oven-proof Dutch oven cook the bacon pieces until crisp (about 7-8 minutes).
  • Add in well-drained beans and all the remaining ingredients; mix well to combine and bring to a boil on top of the stove.
  • Transfer the pot to the oven.
  • Bake uncovered until beans are tender and the liquid thickens, stirring occasionally (about 3-1/2 - 4 hours).
  • *NOTE* this can be made a day ahead (even better as the flavors blend!) cover and refrigerate, just bring the beans to a simmer before serving.
