My Aunt Jackie used to make THE BEST baked beans whenever we had a family gathering. She'd actually "doctor" canned baked beans by adding brown sugar, ketchup, molasses, mustard, onion, garlic, and LOADS of bacon. The recipe I developed is actually not like hers because I use the large dried lima beans. BUT, her recipe and it's flavors are my inspiration.

How To Make almost like aunt jackie's baked beans
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large baking dish with no-stick spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the lima beans, ham (or bacon), onion, garlic, ketchup, barbeque sauce, corn syrup, brown sugar, mustard, liquid smoke and ham flavoring (I use Goya ham concentrate - pictured). Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until hot and bubbly. During this step you may have to add some of the reserved cooking liquid so beans don't dry out.
HINT: dried lima beans must be washed and soaked overnight then drain soaking liquid. Add about 5-6 cups fresh water and cook for approximately 2 hours or until beans are soft, adding water as needed. Refer to instructions on bean packaging for further details. Please note: COOK TIME listed includes the 2 hour stove top cooking, prep time and baking time
For extra flavor, lay slices of bacon on top of beans when ready to bake.
