Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 300° F. Cook the bacon in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until nearly crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the onion, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft, 4 to 6 minutes more.
  2. Add the beans, molasses, ketchup, mustard, and 5 cups water to the pot and stir to combine; bring to a boil.
  3. Cover the pot and transfer to oven. Bake until the liquid is reduced by half, about 2½ hours. Uncover and bake, stirring once, until the cooking liquid is thickened, 1 to 1¼ hours more. Stir in the vinegar and serve.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
