Recipe Of The Week - From Scratch Baked Beans
With Memorial Day quickly approaching, I thought this would be a good recipe to make at home or to bring with you to a party.
- 2 1/2 cups great northern dried beans
- 4 cups water
- 1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
1. Wash and drain the dry beans. Combine beans and water in slow cooker. Cook on low 8 hours or overnight.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cook on low 6 hours. If the beans look too watery as they near the end of their cooking time, you can remove the lid during the last 30 - 60 minutes.
