    Add five cups of clean water to pot. Add the beans and all other remaining ingredients, except the reserved bacon and stir.

    Place the remaining bacon on top of the pot. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. Half way through the baking, stir, and check the pot to make sure it has enough liquid. If not add a little more water and continue to bake the allotted time.
