DIRECTIONS

  • Cover beans with water and soak overnight.
  • Rinse beans then bring to a boil in approximately 1 quart of water, bay leaf and garlic - simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and let beans stand for approximately 1 1/2 hours until soft. Drain and reserve the bean liquid. Discard bay leaf and garlic.
  • Mix together remaining ingredients (excluding beans and bacon).
  • Add beans to bean pot (or any covered dish).
  • Stir in molasses mixture to beans. Top off with some of the reserved bean liquid.
  • Arrange bacon on top.
  • Cover and bake at 300 degrees for 7 hours. For the final hour of cooking, remove cover to let bean brown up nicely.
  • Note: check occasionally and keep beans covered with reserved bean liquid during cooking.
