  1. Place the navy beans into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand 8 hours to overnight. Or, bring the beans and water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Once boiling, turn off the heat, cover, and let stand 1 hour. Drain and rinse before using.
  2. Place the beans in a large saucepan with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 1 hour.
  3. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Stir the ketchup, maple syrup, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and chili powder together in a small bowl; set aside.
  4. Once the beans have simmered for 1 hour, drain, and reserve the cooking liquid. Pour the beans into a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish and stir in the chopped onion and the molasses sauce. Stir in enough of the reserved cooking liquid so the sauce covers the beans by 1/4 inch.
  5. Cover, and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C), and cook 6 hours longer. Stir the beans after they have cooked for 3 hours. Once the beans are tender and the sauce has reduced and is sticky, remove from the oven, stir, recover, and allow to stand 15 minutes before serving.

Everybody in my family liked this, though we all found it too sweet. The long cooking definitely adds a richness and depth of flavor. I added mustard in with the ketchup mixture, and a half pou...

Fantastic when used as a base recipe. I added white vinegar (1-2 tsp), 1/2 tsp dry mustard, a dash of poultry seasoning and used red kidney beans as that was what we had on hand. It needs a tang...

Whoever gave this less than 5 stars is drunk. I joined this website just so I could comment on this recipe. I soaked the dry beans overnight, threw them in the crockpot and decreased water to ...

This was my third and final attempt at baked beans that weren't horrible - and they were exactly the opposite! This is a keeper for sure. I also added 1 finely diced green pepper, 1 tsp. vineg...

This recipe is wonderful. I cut the Maple syrup in half, because we often think recipes are to sweet. I also put it all in the crockpot all day and took the lid off for the last hour or so to ...

I added mustard, minced green pepper, ground beef, and omitted the maple syrup to the recipe. Very tasty, we served with corn bread for a complete meal. We will definitely be making again.

Added bell pepper, a couple shakes of hot sauce, and 1/4th cup brown sugar. Omitted Ketchup added 1 small can tomato paste and 2 tbs mustard. I feel sorry for my neighbors having to smell it a...
