Christmas sparkles and sustenance

Mr. F and I are going to a dinner party tonight. I'm so excited! Mr. F made a great bean dish with navy beans, bacon, onion and molasses! 

Ingredients

 
1 quart navy beans
 
8 cups water
 
1/2 lb. salt pork or bacon
 
4 teaspoons salt
 
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
 
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
 
1/4 teaspoon pepper
 
1/2 cup dark molasses
 
1/2 cup catsup

How to make Dutch Oven Baked Beans

Wash and sort beans.
Soak in water overnight.
Simmer in Dutch Oven about 30 minutes, then skim.
Fry salt pork, or bacon, in skillet until golden brown and nearly done.
Add seasonings and blend.
Then add this mixture to beans.
Cover and simmer about 3 hours.
Tilt cover and continue simmering for 30 minutes to brown top.


Here are a few other things that make me happy on Friday evening, and they all involve sparkles!
