1 lb. beans (Grade A North)

1/2 lb light brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 lid full of vinegar (probably about 2 tsp)

1/2 bottle of ketchup

1/2 tsp mustard

1/4 lb bacon (cut in 1/2 inch pieces and browned - you can use the bacon fat

and put in with the beans when they are cooked)

1 pinch of salt

1 shake of pepper

Put beans in pot and add twice as much water to beans

Bring to a boil

Turn down temperature and cook until tender (about 2 1/2 -3 hours)

Stir periodically to keep tender

Leave the water on the beans and add the other ingredients

Stir together and simmer or pour in a casserole and bake at 325 F until flavor

gets incorporated into beans. Could also put into a crock pot and slow cook.
