* Soak beans overnight. Use cold water. Using the same water from soaking the beans, simmer the beans until tender, roughly 1-2 hours. Drain the liquid and reserve the liquid to use later in the recipe.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius)
- In a 2 quart bean pot or casserole dish, layer a coat of beans on the bottom of the dish, layer the strips of bacon and chopped onion.
- Use a saucepan to warm up liquid mixture: combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Then use the reserved liquid from the cooking of the beans to pour over the layers of beans, onions and bacon. Pour enough to cover the beans.
- Cover the dish with the according lid or aluminum foil to begin the baking process.
- Baked for roughly 3-4 hours or until beans are tender. Check the beans halfway into the process and add any additional liquid into the dish to avoid any dried beans.
