We baked a ham Sunday and I wanted a pot of beans. I was going to make Northern Beans and Ham but my oldest said he wanted “Sweet Beans”. That is his name for Baked Beans. 😀 So…..Sweet Beans and Ham it is! A pan of Corn Bread and we will be set!
Sweet Beans and Ham
1 bag of dried Great Northern Beans…12 oz
3/4 to 1 cup Ketchup
3 teaspoons Honey Mustard
1/2 cup packed Brown Sugar
1 small Onion, diced
1 1/2 cups diced Smoked Ham
1/3 teaspoon Pepper
Rinse beans and pick out any bad ones or foreign objects. Put in pot, cover with water, boil 2 minutes. Cover, remove from heat and let sit 1-4 hours.
Drain the beans and rinse. Put in crock pot…add ingredients and water to cover. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low –10 hours.
Okay….NOTE HERE: I boiled the beans for 2 minutes. Let sit for 4 hours, first day with a girlfriend without my precious babies in umpteen years, then cooked on high for 5 hours in crock pot. They were NOT done. I had to cook them at 3 minute intervals for 30 minutes. Sooooo, next time I will either….cook for an hour and then put in crock pot or, simmer on stove for the afternoon.
