Sweet Beans and Ham

Sweet Beans and Ham

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

1/2 Salt

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.
