Ingredients

  • 2  Cups  dry navy beans
  • 6  Cups  water
  • 1 1/2  Cup  chopped onion
  • slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces*
  • 1/3  Cup  molasses
  • 1/3  Cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/4  Cup  Tabasco brand Buffalo Style Hot Sauce
  • 1  Teaspoon  dry mustard
  • 1  Teaspoon  salt

Directions

Sort the beans and rinse well. Place the beans in a large saucepan and cover with water. Soak for 8 hours or overnight. Drain the beans and add the 6 cups of water. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour or until tender. Drain and reserve the liquid.

Combine the beans with the remaining ingredients and mix well. Spoon into a 2-quart casserole or bean pot and pour in just enough of the reserved liquid to cover the beans (about 1 ½ cups).

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. 

Cover the dish with a lid or foil and bake for 3-4 hours or to desired consistency, stirring occasionally and adding more liquid if needed to keep beans moist. Uncover the beans for the last 30 minutes of cooking.
