I found this recipe in the June 2009 issue of Family Circle magazine. It is located on page 224. It is also located here.
I really enjoyed these beans. They reminded me of all the delicious beans I ate growing up in Maine when we would go to the maple sugar farms. I decided to add some maple syrup in to the beans after they were finished cooking. This really added flavor to the beans.

  • 1  pound of navy beans, soak overnight and then rinse.
  • 1/2  teaspoon of baking soda
  • 4  slices of bacon, finely chopped
  • 1  medium-size onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2  cup of molasses
  • 1/4  cup of dark-brown sugar
  • 2  cups of boiling water
  • 2  teaspoons of dry mustard
  • 1  teaspoon of cider vinegar
  • 1/2  teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon of black pepper

  1. Drain the beans and  place them in a large saucepan. Cover the beans with water. The water should be above the beans by 2 inches.
  2. Next stir in the baking soda.
  3. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Then boil for 15 minutes. Skim off any foam.
  5. Meanwhile, heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the bacon to the skillet and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Next add the onion to the pan; cook 5 more minutes, stirring almost constantly.
  7. Drain the beans and transfer them to a slow cooker.
  8. Top the beans with the bacon mixture.
  9.  Stir in the molasses, sugar, boiling water and 1 teaspoon of the dry mustard.
  10. Cover and cook on high for 5 hours or on low for 6-1/2 hours.
  11. Remove the cover; stir in the remaining 1 teaspoon dry mustard, the cider vinegar and salt and pepper; serve immediately.
