Homemade Baked Beans

These cook best in a crock pot but can be made in the oven at 250 degrees.


1 lb dried white beans
6 1/2 cups water
1 slice bacon, chopped
1 cup chopped onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 TBL yellow mustard
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1/2 tsp ground black pepper


Get rid of shriveled or discolored beans. Wash thoroughly. Put in crock pot along with water. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 10 hours. If beans are too dry near end of cooking, add 1/2 cup water.
