Easy Recipes, Baked Beans

bean pot
This is a recipe from our Grant Farm Honey Recipes Cookbook. Perfect for a cold day!

Baked Beans
2 cups dried beans, your choice
1 large onion; chopped
1/4 pound salt pork, or 1 tablespoon of salt
3 tablespoons dry mustard
3 tablespoons molasses
1/4 cup honey

Soak the beans over night.

Preheat oven to 500°F.

Cut salt pork in half and put a piece in the bottom of a bean pot. Add the beans and soaking liquid. Add the rest of the ingredients, placing the other piece of salt pork on top of the beans. Be sure you have plenty of water to cover the beans well.

Bake at 500°F for one hour, then lower the temperature to 350°F and cook about 4 to 4 1/2 hours longer. Check the liquid every so often and add more as needed.
