How to Make Maddy's Newfoundland Baked Beans


  1. Soak beans in water and a little salt overnight. The following day, drain the water and cover with clean water. Cover pot, but leave lid partway open. Boil the beans on medium for 1 1/2 hours. When finished, drain and set aside.
  2. Cut up the bacon into small pieces. Chop the onion and fry the onion and HALF the bacon together in the bottom of your oven cooking pot using a tablespoon of butter, until the bacon and onion are translucent. Stir occasionally while cooking. (About 10 minutes).
  3. Add five cups of clean water to pot. Add the beans and all other remaining ingredients, except the reserved bacon and stir.
  4. 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.
  5. My husband likes to stir in extra brown sugar at the end to make it a little sweeter for his taste. I agree.
