Directions:
In a large bowl, put beans 8 cups of water. By the next morning, the volume of beans will be 6 cups and there will be about an inch of water. Preheat oven to 300 degrees and place the rack in the middle of the oven. Cook bacon, drain the fat, chop into bite sized pieces. Keep 1 tablespoon of fat. Leave browned bits in the pan. Fry the onions in the bacon fat until golden. Don't overcook. Mix together the molasses, salt, pepper, and mustard. Drain and rinse the beans. In a 4 qrt oven proof dish place the beans and cover with about 2 " of water. Mix in the molasses. Stir it into the beans (if it's too thick, put in a bit of warm water). Cover the pot and bake in the oven at 300 degrees for 5-6 hours. You can not make this happen more quickly. Every hour, remove lid and stir beans. Add water when needed. For the last hour, remove lid. Add water if needed but don't add too much. Reduce heat to 250 degrees and leave uncovered for last hour. Mix the cornstarch with enough water to make it a syrup consistency. Remove the beans from oven, stir gently. While stirring add the cornstarch and let the heat thicken the sauce. Use only what is needed of cornstarch.
