- Ready In:
- 10hrs 10mins
- In crockpot, stir together, beans, chopped onion, sugar, molasses and mustard. Add salt pork and 5 cups water.
- Cook on high for 4 hours, change to low and cook until dark brown and beans are tender. Stir occasionally. Add water if the beans begin to look dry and are still uncooked. I cook overnight on low and the beans are usually done in the morning. I don't remember the exact amount of salt pork but I usually buy the square package of Hormel.

This recipe has great home made taste. It's super easy to prepare because it needed no special attention at all. We just placed all the ingredients into the crock pot and left it cook overnight. When we got up the house was filled with the delightful and comforting scent of Boston Baked Beans and the taste was just as wonderful. My family loved it ... this recipe is a keeper!
Love this recipe! It couldn't be any easier and it tastes like the expensive Firehouse beans from the grocery store. I usually make a double batch in my largest crockpot, and then freeze it in pint-size portions to pull out as an easy side for any meal. It makes 6 pints to freeze (or one to eat and 5 to freeze!). Also, since I often have bacon on hand, I use that instead of salt pork. I fry up a pound for a double batch and dice it finely to throw in the crockpot.
