Made these right before the big flood of May 2010 in Nashville. Sweet cornbread would go great with this.

Ingredients

1 lbs pkg
dry navy beans
1-2 large
vadalia onions
1 1/2 c
brown sugar, lightly packed
1 tsp
yellow mustard
1 jar(s)
sourgham syrup
1 pkg
salt pork or bacon ends
1-2 tsp
baking soda
water to soak beans overnight

Step-By-Step

1Empty beans in a bowl. Pick out any beans that look bad. Cover with water and soak them overnight.

2Next morning dump beans and water into a pot. You can rinse and add more water to beans if you like. Heat beans with the baking soda added to the pot. Reserve the liquid.

3Mix 2 cups of reserve liquid with brown sugar, dry mustard and molasses. Set aside.

4I use a small crock pot. I layer onions slices, beans and salt pork or bacon ends. Pour reserve liquid and continue to layer till nearly full.

5Cover crock with foil and put a cookie sheet on rack below to catch any spills. I add a little extra molasses and brown sugar after an hour or two of cooking. Check beans so they do not dry out and burn. If needed I add some reserve liquid not used in the process.

6Oven should be low 250 degrees to 275 degrees max. Cook till beans are tender 5 hours or more.
