Slow Cooker Baked Beans
1 pound dry white beans
8 cups water
4 ounces diced salt pork
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup molasses
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
The night before, combine the Great Northern Beans and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 1/2 hours. Pour beans and their liquid into a bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, drain off liquid, reserving 1 cup. Pour beans and the reserved liquid into the slow cooker. Stir in the salt pork, onion, molasses, brown sugar, mustard and pepper. Cover, and cook on Low for 12 to 14 hours. Stir before serving.
These are very good! I'm going to try and substitute some other type of beans. I'm just worried that other beans might break down too much during the cooking time. Maybe lower the cooking time? What do you think?
