Sweet Baked Northern Beans

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 pounds dry Northern beans
1 smoked ham hock (any size)
2 pounds brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry yellow mustard
6 strips of bacon

Instructions

In a six quart kettle, soak Northern beans overnight with at least 3 inches of water above the beans. The next day, add the ham hock to the beans and more water so that ham and beans are covered. Cook over low heat until beans are tender and liquid is 1 inch lower than the beans. Take meat off the bone and add back to beans along with the brown sugar and yellow mustard. Mix well and put in an ungreased 9x13 baking dish. Cover top of beans with cut bacon strips. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees or until bacon is done. Can be made and refrigerated the day before and baked day of your dinner.
