Directions

1.Early in the day or day before: Place sorted, rinsed beans in large stockpot. Cover with water to 2 inches above bean level. Cover, tilting to vent; soak 8 hours to overnight. 2.Day you're cooking: Drain beans, discarding soaking water. Add beans and 9 cups fresh water to medium stockpot. Heat on HIGH uncovered, until boiling. Skim as much foam as possible from surface. Add 4 sage leaves and 1 sprig of rosemary; reduce heat to MEDIUM. Cover, tilting to vent steam. Cook 1 hour; do not stir. 3.Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in braising pan on MEDIUM. Add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 min, until tender. Chop remaining 20 sage leaves and sprig of rosemary; add to onion mixture in braising pan. Cook 1 min. 4.Add tomatoes and salt and pepper. Simmer 10 min, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. 5.Check beans for tenderness; they should be completely tender. If they are not, cover completely; cook additional 15 min or as needed. 6.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add beans and liquid to onion mixture in braising pan; stir to combine. Drizzle with remaining olive oil. Bake 60 min. Beans will be done when liquid has reduced, becoming syrupy and bubbly. Carefully remove from oven; season to taste with salt and pepper. 7.Mix basting oil and panko in small bowl. Place mixture over baked beans and return to oven; bake 20-30 min until topping is brown and crisp. Option(s): Substitute 4 cans of Northern Beans, undrained. Begin recipe at step 3 and eliminate step 5.
