Recipe type: Side dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 6 oz. bacon, (about half a pack, 5-6 slices) cut into pieces
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 2 - 15 oz. cans of navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp. molasses, (honey or maple syrup will work as a substitute!)
  • ½ Tbsp. stone ground mustard
  • ½ cup hot water, (the water should just cover the beans)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  1. Heat a heavy pot with a lid over medium-low heat.
  2. Fry up the bacon bits for about 5 minutes until they start getting golden and crispy, and then add the onion and jalapeño.
  3. Continue cooking and stirring for 2-3 more minutes until the veggies soften.
  4. Add the beans to the pot, and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Put the the lid on the pot, lower the heat to low, and check the beans after 20 minutes.
  6. Stir, and let cook 20 minutes more. Check the beans, and once the water is almost all gone they are done.
