Sherrie Wieland


2 pound of yellow eye (or other large dried beans)- I use Great Northern Beans
1/2 lb salt pork- I dont usually add this
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp pepper
pinch of salt
1 medium onion

1. soak the beans overnight in water enough to cover generously
2. next day, boil the beans until the skins peel back when you blow upon a spoonful
3. preheat an oven to 250 ( bake for 8 hours) or 300 ( bake for 6 hours)- i use a crockpot
4. Put the beans together with the pork, molasses, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper, and onion in a bean pot and add enough water to barely cover the beans
5. Put the pot into the oven and bake for 6 to 8 hours, checking from time to time and adding water if beans on top look dry.
6. remove the lid for the last hour or so
