   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  cups          dried navy or kidney beans -- soaked 5 hours
      1/3  cup           molasses
      1/4  cup           brown sugar
    1      tablespoon    dry mustard
      1/4  teaspoon      cayenne
    1      teaspoon      Bakon yeast
                         (available at health food stores)
    2      teaspoons     tamari
    2      medium        onions -- chop in large pieces
    2                    bay leaves
    3      cloves        garlic -- minced
    1      teaspoon      salt
                         Freshly cracked pepper
 Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Drain the beans, cover with fresh
 water, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then drain again.  Whisk
 together the molasses, sugar, mustard, cayenne, Bakon yeast, and
 tamari in a bowl, then mix with the beans and add the onions, bay
 leaves, garlic, salt, and pepper. Place in a bean pot or 2-quart
 baking dish and add water to cover the beans.  Cover and bake until
 the beans are very soft, 7 to 8 hours.  Check periodically and add
 more water, if needed, to keep the beans from drying out.  Remove
 the cover during the last half hour of cooking so a crust can form.

 Serving Ideas : Serve with corn bread and a salad.
 NOTES : Bakon yeast contributes the smoky flavor instead of using
 salt pork.  A crockpot would work fine with this recipe.
