Trans-fat Free, Good source of fiber


1 pound white beans
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 medium onions
½ pound salt pork
or bacon
cup brown sugar
½ cup molasses
2 teaspoons dry mustard
½ teaspoons salt


Soak beans overnight, well covered with cold water.

Pour off soaking water and pick over beans to remove any bad ones, or debris.

Put beans in a pot.

Cover with fresh cold water and add 1 teaspoon baking soda.

Bring to a boil and cook until skins of beans crack when you take one out on a spoon and blow on it.

Cut onion in quarters and put in bottom of a bean crock or large casserole.

Add the partially cooked beans.

Put cut up salt pork or bacon on top.

Combine brown sugar, molasses, mustard and salt with 1½ cups boiling water.

Pour over the beans.

Add more boiling water, if needed, to come just to the top of the beans.

Add more boiling water as needed during baking time (after 2 & 4 hours add until its to the top of beans again)

Bake, covered, at 300℉ (150℃) for 6 hours, or until beans are tender.
