   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         dried white pea beans
    1      medium        onion -- diced
      1/2  cup           molasses
      1/2  teaspoon      dry mustard
      1/4  cup           brown sugar -- packed
    1      teaspoon      salt
      1/4  pound         salt pork -- lean, diced
 
 Pick over beans and rinse.  Place in a large bowl; add water to cover.	Let stand
overnight; drain.  Combine beans and onions in a large saucepan; add water to
cover; heat to boiling; cover.	Simmer 45 minutes, or until skins of beans burst
when you blow on several in a spoon.  Drain liquid into a small bowl.  Measure 1
cup of the bean liquid and combine with molasses, mustard, brown sugar, and salt
in a bowl.  Layer half of the salt pork and all of the beans into an 8 cup bean
pot.  Pour molasses mixture overtop; add just enough more saved liquid to cover
beans.	Top with remaining salt pork, pressing down into liquid; cover.  Bake at
300F 4 hours; uncover.	Bake 1 hour longer, or until beans are deep brown,
tender, and as dry as you like them.  (After 2 hours baking, check beans, and if
they seem dry, add more saved bean liquid to keep them moist.)
