FROM SCRATCH BAKED BEANS

Created to be not too sweet yet very flavorful.

Servings: 15

Ingredients

6 c washed and cleaned navy beans
2/3 c molasses (I use Grandma’s brand)
1 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
1/2 lb cut up pieces thick smoky bacon
2 c brown sugar
1/3 c white sugar
3/4 tbsp onion powder
pinch black pepper
Tones brand soup bases: 1 1/2 tsp chicken and 1 1/2 tsp beef
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes.

Directions

Makes a large batch. Can be halved, or you may need two crock pots depending on size of crock.
Soak cleaned beans 8 hours. Rinse. Place in crock pot with Tones and water covering beans by 1 1/2 “. Cook 8 hours on high or until very tender.
Mix sugars, molasses, mustard, onion, garlic, pepper. Add 1 cup of cooking liquid, stir and pour back into crock. Mix. Place bacon on top. Cook 8 hrs low. Now, stir in the bacon and continue 1 hour until eating…
Bacon adds enough salt to the recipe. This is sweet but not too sweet. Once sugars are added, the skins on the beans won’t soften anymore.ENJOY!
