2 cups dried beans
6-8 slices bacon
1 tsp. ginger
1 Tbsp. chopped onion
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard


Soak washed beans in 4 cups warm water for 3 hours. Cook on low heat in tightly covered saucepan 1 1/4 hours; do not allow to boil. Drain beans, save water. Place bacon in bottom of bean pot and add beans. Cover with mixture made of the bean water, honey, onion, ginger, salt, and mustard. Add boiling water, if needed. Place small pieces of bacon on top, cover pot, and bake in slow oven about 6 hours. Uncover bean pot during last hour of baking. If the beans become too dry, add a little water.
