An appropriate recipe for this time of year when back yard or family picnics require everyone to bring a dish to add to the fun. This recipe I took from a PA Dutch cook book many years ago, at least 60, and it been around much longer than that. A great dish to add to a cookout, easy and economical, too.

- Salt to taste
- 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- ½ tsp. mustard
- 1/8 cup molasses

Soak & cook beans until soft . Place beans in pot. Add sugar, molasses, onion, salt and mustard. Cut bacon into small pieces & stir into beans.
Add ketchup and water to taste. Cover pot & place in oven 250 for about 4 hours.( Works well in crock pot)
