Baked Beans

1 (16 oz) package Great Northern or small white beans, (rinsed and picked over to remove any bad beans)
9 cups boiling water
1/2 cup molasses
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 pound salt pork, chopped

In a large pot, combine the beans and 7 cups of the water. Heat to boiling. Reduce the heat to medium and cook 10 minutes; drain water.

Add the beans to a 3 1/2 quart Dutch Oven. Add the remaining 2 cups hot water, molasses, brown sugar, mustard, onion, pepper, and salt pork. Mix well.

Cover and cook for 5 to 6 hours, or until the beans are tender (you can split them easily with a fork). Season with salt to taste. Serve with hot corn bread (muffins) or slices of hot brown bread and butter.
