Chef's tip
Traditionally pork and beans are cooked in an earthenware pot for better cooking.

- 550 ml (2 1/4 cups) dried White Bean or White Kidney Beans
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) Brown Sugar
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped onion
- 75 ml (5 tbsp.) Molasses
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) diced salt pork
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tsp. dry mustard
  1. Soak the beans in water overnight. Discard the water.
  2. Brown the bacon. Sweat the onions in the bacon fat.
  3. Add the drained beans. Cover and cook in a 120° C (250° F) oven for 4-6 hours.
  4. Thirty minutes before the end of the cooking time, remove the lid to brown the beans.
