Crock pot baked beans
Old-Fashioned Baked beans
1 lb. dried navy beans, ( I like to use dried large Lima beans)
1 medium onion finley chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1 teas. peprika
1/2 teas. dried leaf basil ( I like to add a bit more- love basil)
1 lb smoked ham, bacon or salt pork, diced ( I use bacon)
Soak beans over night in 9 cups of water. Cook beans in water until softened. Draine and stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into crock pot. Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 12 hours or High for 3 to 4 hours.
Tip for us working folks. I get the sauce and bacon ready the night before and refrigerate. When I get up in the a.m. I start the beans cooking, low and crack the lid they will boil over if not careful. By the time I'm ready to leave for wok I drain the beans, add to crock-pot stir in sauce, and out the door. Salad, loaf of bead and you have a meal!
