"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1 lb. dry packaged navy beans
8 oz. cubed sliced bacon
2 c. chopped onion
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/3 c. unsulphured molasses
1/3 c. packed light brown sugar
2 tsp. prepared mustard
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. ground allspice
2 bay leaves
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Place beans in large saucepan with water to cover by two inches. Heat to boiling and boil two minutes.

Let stand, covered, for one hour. Drain. Return beans to pan and with enough water to come to the top of the beans, heat to boiling.

Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until tender but not soft, for 30 to 40 minutes. Transfer beans and liquid to bean pot or 3-quart casserole.

Stir bacon and remaining ingredients into beans. Bake, covered at 250 degrees for one hour.

Uncover and bake until desired thickness, for four to six hours, stirring every hour.
