So I went through several baked beans recipes, taking what I liked from each one, and put this together. This is a work in progress (and a bit of a shopping list) and I will post the final ingredients later.

1 pound dry great northern, navy, or pink beans
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 bay leaf
1 ham bone

Steps
1. Place beans in container, cover with several inches of cool water, let stand for 8 hours.

2. Place beans in large sauce pan with 4 cups of water, bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, cover, simmmer for 1 hour
3. Preheat oven to 375F
4. After simmering for 1 hour, drain and reserve the cooking liquid. Pour beans into a 1 1/2 qaurt casserole dish and stir in everything. Stir in enough reserved cooking liquid that sauce covers the beans by 1/4 inch.
Cover and bake in preheated over for 10 mninutes, then reduce heat to 200F and cook for 6 hours longer, stirring every 3 hours.

Once the gbeans are tender and the sauce reduced and is sticy, remove from oven. Allow to stand for at least 15 minutes before eating.

Oh man! Ok, the beans turned out wonderfully... but you might ask yourself why I am posting about them at 2am! Well, I must have added a bit too much water to the pot and it took until 1:30am to finish cooking down! So these beans cooked for 13.5 hours!

On to the topic of ketchup. The reason why I used 1/4 cup spicy red duck ketchup was because I ran out of regular ketchup.. but it REALLY makes the beans good. It adds a VERY low level of heat to them that perfectly goes with the sweet.

The recipe seems to have made about 2 quarts of beans. I put them into a large tupperware container and put them in the fridge (after having a small bowl to try them out.)

There are people adding spice to ketchup! This would only be tolerated under a Trump White House! Just another indication that the Centre cannot hold and the world will perish in Fire and Flame! Spicy, spicy flame.

          If this is the case, then SOME of us will understand the ways things should have BEAN[s].
