1 cup dark maple syrup, plus more to taste
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 strips bacon

Directions:
Rinse beans and pick out any small stones or twigs. Place beans in large bowl and cover with enough water to cover. Soak overnight.
In the morning,
drain beans and put them in a large heavy bottomed cooking pot with water to cover. Set over high heat and bring to a boil.
Take off heat and let beans sit in water for 30 minutes. Drain again, rinse, cover with fresh water, and cook at a simmer partially covered, until tender. This can take as little as another 30 minutes or as much as 2 hours depending on the beans.
Preheat oven to 325. Pour off cooking liquid and reserve. Stir in maple syrup, salt, and mustard powder into beans. Cover beans with strips of bacon.
Bake beans, covered, at least 2 hours and up to 5 hours, again depending on the beans and how you like them.Check periodically and add more reserved liquid if beans become dry. Remove lid for last hour to allow bacon to crisp up.

Personal Notes:
