This was my Dad’s recipe that was vey popular and requested for family gatherings. NO canned beans, NO barbecue sauce and NO brown sugar, just great country baked beans made from scratch. The bacon came from my family’s farms in MN where we butchered our own hogs and smoked the hams, bacon and sausages in our large smokehouses. This is old world Deutsche (German) heritage. Ah, memories. I remember the delicious aroma of those smokehouses.
