BEANSServes 4-6, about 1 ½ quarts


  • 1 pound dried navy beans
  • ¼ cup unsulfured molasses
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pimenton, smoked paprika
  • ½ cup tomato puree, whole peeled canned plum tomatoes, pureed and strained
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • ½ large onion peeled and halved
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 10 ounces sliced bacon, cut into ½ “ pieces
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  2. Drain beans in a colander and set aside. Heat oven to 300°.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine molasses, mustard, brown sugar, pimenton, tomato puree, bay leaves and 5 cups water. Bring to a boil and whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Stud the onion half with the cloves, and place in the bottom of a terra-cotta bean pot or Dutch oven.
  4. Add beans, bacon and warm molasses mixture. The liquid should cover the beans by 1/2 inch. Add more water if necessary
  5. Cover with foil and transfer to oven to bake, without stirring, until the beans are tender and the liquid has thickened, about 1 hour. Check the beans at 30 minutes, adding more hot water if necessary to keep beans slightly soupy at all times. For the then every 15 minutes until tender. When tender, uncover beans and raise heat to 450°. Cook for an additional 15-20 minutes, until broth has thickened. Remove from oven, and season with salt, pepper and cider vinegar.
