Suggestions: If cooking in a slow cooker (crock-pot), make sure that there is sufficient liquid to just cover the beans.

Serves: 8 person(s)
Yield: 8 x 1/2 cup servings

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 6 hrs

Ingredients:

    2 cup dried white, cannellini or haricot beans
    1 (14 oz) can tomatoes
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 tsp 'Lite' (or 1/4 tsp table salt)

Directions:

    Rinse beans in cold water then place in a large saucepan of boiling water. Return to the boil and cook for 2 minutes.

    Remove from heat, cover and leave to swell and soften for 1 hour. Drain.

    Place tomatoes, molasses, onion, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and salt in a large casserole dish. Stir in prepared beans. Cover and place in a 300F slow oven for 4 to 6 hours. (Very slow baking allows the full flavor to develop.)

Variations:

    An equal amount of treacle can be used in place of molasses, if desired.
