Skip store-bought cans, because you can't beat the sweet, savory and smoky taste of homemade baked beans with bacon and molasses. The old-fashioned beans cook slowly in the oven for hours, developing a rich, thick sauce. Baked beans from scratch are the perfect side dish for your next cookout or potluck, and a simple lunch or dinner entrée when paired with cornbread or Boston brown bread!

1 lb. dried navy or Great Northern beans
1/2 lb. bacon
1 medium onion
1/2 c ketchup

2 T apple cider vinegar
2 t dry mustard
