My baked beans recipe
 
For a #10 Do and a lot of people

2 Lbs great northern beans
3 Lbs bacon (I'm frugal, and use ends and cutoffs)
2 medium onions rough chopped
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 tsp salt
4 cups vegetable broth
optional - 1 or 2 can(s) diced tomatoes (drained)
optional - 1/2 tsp hot sauce of your choosing

Soak beans (after checking for stones, etc) in 1 - 1 1/2 gal water overnight. Drain before adding to remaining ingredients .

Rough chop bacon and render in DO over medium heat. Midway through add onion to sweat.

After bacon is rendered, drain bacon grease. Add remaining ingredients, stir to combine, and cook covered in oven at 250F for 8 Hrs or more (I do it overnight).

Enjoy :glutton:

Fresh bread and beans, one of my favorites. Haven't bought bread in 15 Yrs, always make it. Simple if you have power tools.

RobM You can freeze the baked beans. I like to make a large batch each time and freeze some, very good cold or hot.:glutton:

The other baked bean recipe that I use is about the same as yours but I add.
Black Pepper, Dry Mustard, hit of Vinegar, and pinch of Ground Cloves.

You add Diced Tomatoes and Vegetable Broth, that I do not. Do not get me wrong as I like the idea of diced tomatoes. I rinse the beans then put them in the pressure cooker for around 20 - 30 minutes, Baked Beans are ready in 4 hours. I just add some of the bean water from the pressure cooker when needed. I did post my baked bean recipe a while back.

Thank you for sharing.:glutton:

The pressure cooker technique is a good way to reduce the time to hydrate the beans. I also happen to prefer cooking the recipe for at least 8 Hrs. I believe that this this allows the flavors to develop more fully. I have used the bean water in the past for liquid, but I believe that the veg broth adds more flavor.

Just my $0.02
