Crock Pot Boston Baked Beans

"Easy,delicious old fashioned baked beans. No need to soak overnight. Cook on low in the crockpot overnight and they come out perfect everytime. Only add water if needed otherwise they will come out too wet. The longer they cook the beter they taste."

  • 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!

    Loved this recipe! Loved that it had few ingredients, and not loaded with sugar. I did add some jalapeno. because in the southwest we love heat. will make again and again

    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.

    Turned out good but was lacking something.
