  • Rinse the dried beans with water and place them in a bowl. Cover them with cold water and soak them overnight.
  • After soaking, drain the water from the beans and put them in a pot. Add 6 cups of cold water to the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook the beans for 1-2 hours until they are tender. Drain the water and reserve it.
  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • Take a 2-quart bean pot or casserole dish and layer the bottom of it with a portion of the cooked beans, then add a layer of diced bacon and chopped onion. Continue layering the beans, bacon, and onion until you've used them all.
  • In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and then pour it over the layered beans in the casserole dish.
  • Pour just enough of the reserved bean water over the beans to cover them.
  • Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil and bake it in the preheated oven for 3-4 hours, or until the beans are tender.
  • Remove the lid about halfway through cooking and add more liquid if necessary to prevent the beans from drying out.
  • Once the beans are cooked, take them out of the oven and serve them hot.
