Preparation Instructions

Sort beans and soak overnight. Drain and rinse before using.

Preheat oven to 275.

Heat large pan over medium heat. Sauté onions, garlic and ginger until lightly browned. Add catsup, brown sugar, tomato soup, mustard and spices and simmer 2-3 minutes. Add beans and mix well. Transfer to a corning or glass covered casserole and bake uncovered in oven 3 hours. Check beans at 2 hours to see if they need more liquid. Add some reserved cooking water if too dry.

Helpful Hints

Nothing beats the slow cooking to infuse the beans with flavor.
