Baked Beans

  • 4 cups beans
  • 1/2 pound salt pork
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar or
  • 4 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/2 tablespoon mustard
Soak beans over night, drain, cover with cold water and simmer until tender when pierced with a darning needle. Drain, pour one half of beans into bean pot; add salt, sweetening and mustard. Place salt pork which has been scored on top of beans, cover with remaining beans and cover whole with boiling water. Cover bean pot and bake in a slow oven 8 hours. Uncover the last hour of cooking. Many people cook one small onion with the beans. To score pork, cut the pork rind into small squares.
