Ingredients

  • 1 lb bag of small white beans (called navy beans)

  • 1

    large onion

  • 4

    garlic cloves

  • 1

    chunk of fresh ginger

  • 4

    Tbs. molasses, or 4-5 Tbs. dark brown sugar

  • 1

    chunk of smoked bacon or ham, about3 oz and/or 4-5 dried chipotle

  • 2-3

    bay leaves

  • 2

    tsp. salt

  • Several grinds of black pepper

  • 1

    tsp. dried mustard powder, or 1 Tbs. prepared mustard

  • 1

    tsp dried thyme

  • 1

    tsp. ground cumin

  • 1

    tsp. cayenne pepper

  • ½

    cup ketchup

  • water

Directions

Slice the onion. Smash and roughly chop the garlic. Peel and grate the ginger. Put all the ingredients into the pot. Pour in water to about 1 1/2 inch above the level of the beans. Mix well. Put your pot in or turn it on, depending on what approach you're taking. Set the timer to 6 hours. At that point, check on the pot - the beans may be a bit hard, or not, depending on how dry they were to start with. Usually it needs at least 8 hours for the beans to get really tender and sort of caramel-colored. Add water as needed if it looks dry. (If you can't be there to check at the 6 hour mark, just add more water to start with so it doesn't dry up.)
