Kansas City Baked Beans
1 lb navy beans
6 cups water
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup apple cider
1 cup burnt ends
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 onion, chopped
4 strips bacon
1/3 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup mustard
2 tbs cider vinegar
Soak beans for 4 hours in water, then drain. Combine beans and 6 cups water in a large pot. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.
Cook for 2 to 3 hours on a low heat, stirring occasionally. After the beans have softened add salt and continue cooking until the beans are soft enough to mash between your fingers.
Preheat oven to 350°. In a skillet fry the bacon.
Remove the bacon and add the chopped onion and peppers.
Sauté until soft. Crumble bacon. Place the onion and peppers with the bacon in a Dutch oven or baking dish (though a Dutch Oven works best).
Add all remaining ingredients and cover. Bake for 1 hour then remove the cover, stir and continue baking for about 15 minutes.
