Baked Beans #06

Home | Recipes | B


  • 1 lb Small white beans; sorted, soaked
  • 1 lb Bacon - trimmed and cut into small bits
  • 1/2 -(up to)
  • 2/3 c Light brown sugar
  • 1/2 -(up to)
  • 2/3 c Katsup
  • Dry mustard
  • Pepper


Either soak beans overnight in 8-10 times as much water or boild for one minute in above amount of water and let sit for an hour rinse, rinse and rinse again - this is the best way I've found for making them socially acceptable in small rooms.
Cut and trim bacon. I use scissors to cut a few slices at a time into 1/2" pieces. You can generally pull excess fat off the small pieces easily.
In a 3 qt/liter corning ware covered dish (this works very well and cleans well also) lay a layer of beans (about 1/5), squirt ketchup over the beans, sprinkle with brown sugar and (lightly) sprinkle dry mustard and pepper over all. Drop layer of bacon on top. Repeat until everything is used up.
Add enough fresh water to cover everything by 1/8 inch, cover dish, and set in 300 deg. oven. Two hours later, check the water level. One hour later, do the same. Check every hour or so, until about 5-6 hours have passed. By then they should be done.
