Boston Baked Beans
|TABASCO® brand Crushed Red Pepper||---||1 Tbsp. (1.5% use)|
|Navy beans||---||2 cups|
|Onion, finely diced||---||2 each|
|Black pepper, ground||---||1/4 tsp.|
|Dry mustard||---||1/4 tsp.|
|Worcestershire sauce||---||1 Tbsp.|
|Brown sugar||---||1/4 cup|
Soak beans overnight in cold water.
Simmer beans in the same water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve the liquid.
Preheat oven to 325°F.
Arrange beans in a 2-quart casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of the dish and layering them with bacon and onion.
In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, TABASCO® Crushed Red Pepper and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent beans from getting too dry.
