Great Granny's Baked Beans
You'll need 3 cups of beans (Mrs. Cydrus prefers the big Great Northern
beans, but  navy beans are all right), half a pound of salt pork, 5
tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 2/ teaspoons of salt and 3/4 teaspoons of dry
mustard.  Wash the beans and put on to boil until the skin pushes back
when you blow on them.  Drain off water.  Scald salt pork and dice it.  Put
beans in pot with alternate layers of diced pork, saving some of the pork for
over the top.  Mix the brown sugar, salt and mustard with water and pour
over the beans and pork.  Add enough water to cover the beans.  More
water may be needed during the baking.  Recommended baking is at 300
degrees for 5 to 6 hours, but if you boil these beans almost done to begin
with, you'll have excellent results with a 3 hour baking says Mrs. Cydrus.  
Also like to add 3 Tablespoons of molasses if we can afford it.
