• 1 pound small white beans or navy beans
  • 4 cups water
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons dark molasses
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 pound salt pork or bacon, diced
  • 3 cups beer

In a large pot, bring beans and water to a boil; boil for 1 minute then remove from heat. Let stand for 1 hour; drain off water. Place beans in a large, non-metallic casserole. Add onions, molasses, ketchup, mustard, salt, and hot pepper sauce; mix well. Tuck diced salt pork or bacon into the beans. Pour beer over all. Cover and bake at 300° for 6 hours, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the beans are tender. After 5 hours, if there is too much liquid in the casserole, remove cover and allow liquid to evaporate during the last hour of cooking.
Serves 8 to 10.
