Tess' Story

This is an old Ball recipe and it is GOOD! I think it would be very tasty if some of the ketchup was switched out for prepared chili sauce.


1 lb
navy or great northern beans, soaked
1/2 c
brown sugar
1 Tbsp
onion powder
3/4 tsp
prepared mustard
2 1/4 Tbsp
3 c
prepared ketchup
1 can(s)
condensed tomato soup
1 1/2 tsp
salt or to taste
1/2 lb
bacon or salt pork fried, more or less to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Soak beans as usual.
Combine remaining ingredients except bacon. To each hot pint jar, add 1 cup soaked beans then add 1 cup liquid mixture and stir to mix well. Add 1 piece of bacon and push under liquid.
Run a spatula around inside of jar. Clean jar rims thouroghly and adjust lids. Process at 10 pounds pressure for 75 minutes.
Allow pressure cooker to return to no pressure naturally. Remove jars and place on a cloth dishtowel out of the sun. Allow to rest for 24 hours then check for seal.

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I'm on sodium restriction and can alter this recipe to meet my needs. I even found salt free heinz ketchup, so this is a save for me and now I won't be deprived of one of my favorite picnic foods.

    my mother would make these in a big roasting pan, and there was never any left , we would end up making a meal out of the beans 8]
