Slow Cooker Baked Beans
These baked beans are a Southern comfort food in a side dish.
- 1 pound great Northern beans dried
- 12 cups water divided, for soaking and pre-cooking beans
- 1 onion diced
- 4 ounces diced ham or bacon
- ½ cup molasses
- ⅓ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- ½ tsp ground pepper
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 ½ cups water
Soak the beans either using the overnight method or the quick soak method. Drain the beans and add 6 cups of water.
Bring the beans to boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 2 hours. Periodically check to make sure that the beans are covered with water. Add more, if needed. When they have finished cooking, drain the beans.
Place the cooked beans in the crock and add the remaining ingredients. Stir well.
Cook at HIGH temperature in the slow cooker for 4 hours. Stir before serving.
