Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 8 hours
- 1 lb dry white beans, soaked overnight in cold water
- 1/2 lb bacon, cut into 1/2 inch strips
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 cups water
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 tbs ground mustard
- 1 tsp cayenne
Drain beans from soaking liquid.
Layer beans, onions, and bacon in slow cooker, alternating to get a good blend.
In a bowl or measuring cup, combine water, brown sugar, molasses, mustard, and cayenne. Pour over beans.
Cover and cook on low until beans are tender, about 8 hours. (The older beans are, the longer they need to cook.)
