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.
