Boston Baked BeansBoston Baked Beans

Soak beans overnight in a pot of cold water. Next day, simmer beans in the same water over medium-low heat until tender, about one to two hours. Drain; reserve liquid. Preheat oven to 325-degrees F. Arrange the beans in a two-quart pot or casserole dish; layer alternately with the bacon and onion. In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, black pepper, dry mustard, tomato ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring mixture to a boil; pour over beans. Add just enough of the reserved bean water to cover beans. Cover and bake for three to four hours or until beans are tender. Remove cover halfway through cooking time; and add more liquid if necessary to prevent beans from becoming dry. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
