Maple Syrup Baked Beans
2 cups dried navy beans
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
Salt and pepper
Wash beans in colander and pick them over, removing any stones or broken bean bits. Soak beans overnight. Drain beans, return to saucepan and cover with about 6 cups fresh water. Bring to a boil on stovetop, lower heat to medium-low, and cook uncovered for 30 to 40 minutes or until just tender.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Drain beans and place in deep covered casserole or ovenproof cooking pot with lid. Add other ingredients, stir and cover with 4 cups boiling water.
Bake covered for 6 hours, checking and stirring at hourly intervals. Stir in boiling water as needed to keep them from drying out. Serves 8-10 as side dish.
