We’re especially fond of this sweet-and-smoky picnic favorite. And it’s easy to make, too! Only 20 minutes of prep time needed.

Updated October 22, 2008

Ingredients

  • 10
    cups water
  • 2
    cups dried navy beans (1 pound)
  • 1/2
    cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4
    cup molasses
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 6
    slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 1
    medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 3
    cups water

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Heat 10 cups water and the beans to boiling in ovenproof Dutch oven. Boil uncovered 2 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients except 3 cups water.
  • 3
    Cover and bake 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • 4
    Stir in 3 cups water. Bake uncovered 2 hours to 2 hours 15 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender and desired consistency.

  • Navy beans are actually one variety of kidney bean. These small white beans are so named because they’ve been a standard food of the U.S. Navy since the mid-1800s.
  • Why not serve these savory, slightly sweet beans in hollowed-out round dinner rolls? When the beans are gone, you’ll have a sauce-soaked piece of bread to enjoy!
