If you have an old fashioned ceramic bean pot put it into a cold oven or your pot could break.

Soaked navy beans for eight hours and cooked them in a bean pot without preboiling. Used a half pound of bacon and 1/3 cup of brown sugar. It only cooked for 5 hours so I would check them for doneness by then.
