No Meat Baked Beans

I told you I was on a crockpot run....

You will soon see why I made baked beans. Hmmm...maybe it has something to do with Recipe Remix???

This came from my old, reliable, "Fix It and Forget It" cookbook. There are about 10 different baked bean recipes in that sucker, it was hard picking one. I finally settled on a recipe that didn't not call for bacon or salt pork, because I had neither! That's a good reason, right?

I made a few small changes to the original and was really happy with the result!

No Meat Baked Beans

1lb dried navy beans
6 cups water
1 small onion, chopped
Scant 3/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons dark molasses
1 teaspoon salt

Soak beans in water overnight in large pot. Cook beans in water on stove until soft, about 90 minutes. Drain, discarding bean water.

Mix together all ingredients in slow cooker. Mix Well.

Cover. Cook on low 10-12 hours (I found that my beans were done within 9 hours)

I made a baked bean recipe awhile back in the crockpot, but the recipe said you didn't have to soak the beans. They never quite got done - I'm gonna have to use this recipe next time!! I love my crockpot and use it year round and am always looking for good recipes.

They sound great- I don't think I've ever made baked beans from dried beans before.

The last baked beans recipe I made- I forgot about and left it in the oven and it sat there all through our barbecue. I found it the next morning :( Duh!
