I made mine a little bit differently using a full 2 small bags of navy beans and I soaked fro 6 hours first, I added the rest of the ingredients, but I used 1/2 cup of molasses, I baked for 5 h...

I loved this recipe!I did change somethings. I used canned beans instead.I did use the liquid from them and next time I will rinse them before using them. I omitted the ham. I still cooked them ...

I left out the ketchup and used real onions. It needs to bake it in a slow oven in order to give it time to dry out the water, you just cannot rush making beans from scratch!

VERY GOOD and EASY!!!! Thank you so much!!! Mash them up a bit to become like the old style "Grandma Brown's home baked beans" in a can!

Easy and good
