 I had a request for these so I thought I'd also post it to the group. This is 
 a delicious and easy recipe for baked beans that I make often during the 
 winter.
 
 Baked Beans a la Crockpot
 
 3 cups (1 1/2 lbs) beans (pea, navy, or great northern)
 1 medium onion, chopped
 1/2 cup catsup
 1/2 cup brown sugar (dark or light works fine)
 1 cup water
 2 TBL dry mustard
 2 TBL molasses
 1 TBL salt
 1 inch of fresh ginger, minced 
 
 Wash and sort beans. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes and 
 remove from heat. Let soak 1 hour. Bring to a boil again and then simmer 
 approx. 45 min or until cooked but not soft or mushy. 
 
 Drain beans. Put in the crockpot. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and 
 stir into the beans. 
 
 Turn on low and cook 10 - 12 hours. This is great dish to prepare the night 
 before and then turn on the pot when you leave for work in the morning. When 
 you come home at night dinner’s ready and the house smells great!
